Linda Rising Presenting the Power of An Agile Mindset at Agile2011

Checkout the video below of Linda Rising presenting on “The Power of an Agile Mindset” at Agile2011. Linda wonders whether much of Agile’s success was the result of the placebo effect, that is, good things happened because we believed they would. The placebo effect is a startling reminder of the power our minds have over our perceived reality. Now cognitive scientists tell us that this is only a small part of what our minds can do. Research has identified what I like to call “an agile mindset,” an attitude that equates failure and problems with opportunities for learning, a belief that we can all improve over time, that our abilities are not fixed but evolve with effort.
