Hans Luhn’s 1958 publication for IBM first popularized the importance of Business Intelligence (BI) defining it as “an automatic system…developed to disseminate information to the various sections of any… organization.” However, it was not until this century that the supporting technology to implement his theories became cost-effective to the wider business community. The success of BI platforms in recent years has witnessed a rise in industry-specific platforms which, “provides recruitment-specific analytics, business intelligence, reporting, and gamification to help recruitment companies increase revenue, scale efficiently, improve data quality, and motivate teams.”

Agile in Talent Acquisition
Much has been gained in the fields of software product development and project management with the introduction of Agile, which has increased efficiency and reduced time to market. Using Adaptive Agile in talent acquisition is not just about increasing efficiency, but also about hiring the best talent for the highest priority roles that add the most value to the company, and in many cases, generating more revenue through increased productivity.
Adaptive Agile encourages breaking work down into valuable pieces rather than delivering everything at once. Here are the benefits of learned adaptive agile project management that we can bring to your company:
- Increase speed and efficiency
- Enhance the quality of an organization’s talent pool
- Reduce wasted cost and resources
- Decrease cycle time
- Increase predictability
- Prioritize to deliver the highest value first
- Improve the experience of candidates and hiring managers
Infusing Adaptive Agile into an organization’s talent acquisition and recruiting functions needs to be coupled with an assessment of skills and a review of the preexisting perceptions and expectations of the business. As Adaptive Agile was being developed, we infused the importance of focusing on key skills and business partnerships to create a solution that enables teams to focus efforts on the highest priority work, while taking the necessary time to meet and discuss adjustments and improvements to make for the next cycle.
