Agile Sourcing

Mark Lundgren is the fountain of all knowledge when it comes to agile sourcing. When the team at ThoughtWorks were curious about working in a more agile way they knew that in order for it to work they had to go all in. Mark shares their experience on the SocialTalent platform.

Key Takeaways

  1. List all of the blockers that you feel are slowing down your current process.
  2. Scout out somebody who has experience working with an agile framework– they don’t need to have an HR or recruitment background. An external consultant would be ideal but if not possible you can leverage the brainpower of your colleagues.
  3. Dissect your current process, list every step and stakeholder that it takes to get a job done, there’s no such thing as too much detail as this will form the basis of your agile planning.
