Post image for Adaptability

In case you didn’t know, the CIPD has teamed up with the MIX (Management Information Exchange) to hack HR – and they’d like your help. Now – before you grab your hatchet and excitedly chop the legs off the nearest HR Director, it’s not that kind of hack. I know that will disappoint some of you – but that’s how they sorted their work related problems in medieval times, not in 2013. This is more of a clarion call for clever and creative ideas to tricky problems.

Right now – the discussion is centred on ‘How can we make organisations more adaptable?’ Why not pop along to the Hackathon, register and take part? It’s easy to join and once you’re in you can read a growing number of interesting contributions in response to the adaptability question.

In case you are interested, here is my brief response to the question about defining adaptability:

‘Adaptability springs from having the courage to admit you are wrong. From there – all things are possible.’ And you can quote me on that.

What does adaptability mean to you? And how would you hack HR? Join in – have your say.
