Limited Capacity seats available

Among the traits that distinguish a good team from a great team is their ability to innovate. Despite the rhetoric in favor of innovation, most organizations are stuck in an implementation mindset, stifling creativity, excellence, and the resultant innovation. The experimentation mindset frees us from self-imposed constraints, allowing us to continually learn and improve. In this session, we'll talk about how we learn as individuals and how we learn as organizations. We'll take a look at some examples of the experimentation mindset happening in the agile community today and we'll talk about how you can foster such a mindset in your own organization.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Introduction to Dweck's work on Fixed and Growth Mindset
  • Introduction to Dreyfus Model of Skills Acquisition
  • Overview of Argyris' Single and Double Loop Learning
  • Implementation versus Experimentation Mindset
  • An alternative view on "Best Practices"
  • Examples of ways to foster The Experimentation Mindset in your own organization
