The Fourth Programme

Topic: Enhancing Agility of Managing Employees in the VUCA World.


The concept of agility emerged in light of the fast changes that seem to be as dramatic as the industrial and cultural revolutions in history. Extraordinary technological change induced changes in economics, political and social context globally. Adding to changes brought by human world evolution, environment change further brings uncertainty such as the global outbreak of COVID-19. Over the past few months, it has created profound impact on business world globally. We witnessed rise and fall of companies and industries, business closure and new business creation, and disruption of workforce. Whilst China is in its recovery from the virus impact, we cannot ignore the damage that needs repairing is multi-folds. This is also felt by managers and employees and hence traditional workforce structure and people management face challenges more than ever. Where there are changes and disruptions, there are opportunities and breakthrough. Therefore, this programme is designed to help senior managers to develop an agile working philosophy that enables strategic planning and (re)structuring of workforce to steer changes. The programme will introduce agile practices to shape workforce in fulfilling business strategic needs despite of (unexpected) changes. Sessions are highly interactive using blended delivery (mixed of on-line and on-site sessions). Key content of this programme adapts the concept developed by Agile Future Forum in the UK.

敏捷的概念是在快速变化的背景下产生的,这种变化似乎与历史上的工 业革命和文化革命一样引人注目。非凡的技术变革引发了全球经济、政治和社会环境的变化。除了人类世界演变带来的变化外,环境变化也带来了新的不确定性,如全球爆发新冠肺炎疫情。在过去的几个月里,新冠肺炎疫情对全球商业环境产生了巨大的影响。 我们目睹了公司和行业的兴衰,企业倒闭和新企业的诞生,以及一些传统工作形式和工作架构的瓦解。虽然中国正在从疫情的影响中复苏,但我们却不能忽视疫情所带来的多方面的打击和伤害,这些都是需要逐步修复的。管理人员和员工也感受到了新冠疫情对传统劳动力结构和人员管理带来的前所未有的挑战。哪里有变化和混乱,哪里就有机会和突破。本课程旨在帮助高级经理开发一种灵活的工作哲学,使得战略规划和(重组)工作结构能够引导变化。本课程将敏捷的思维方式引入到实践中,以便在发生(意料之外的) 变化的情况下,能够快速形成满足商业战略发展需求的劳动力。课程授课会采用线上和线下相结合的方式,保证学员与老师之间的充分互动。本课程的核心概念来源于英国敏捷未来论坛 (Agile Future Forum)。
