Nina came to agility because she likes complexity and organizations. Agility answers a lot of questions in the organization environment, transformation and change of today for her. Currently working at Swisscom in the leadership squad, she is often confronted with leaders in agile and non-agile settings and supports them to understand and handle these borders to be more seamless.
She has experience in designing and facilitating leadership trainings, coaching leaders and organizational development.
At the end of the date, she cares about the human being which brought her and her colleague Prisca Müller to the question of the Agile Mindset. Being surrounded by an agile environment, does not necessarily mean you are agile, or are you?
agilefit is their contribution for organizations and employees to explore where they can learn to become more effective in the agile world.
Nina’s session at Agile Tour Zürich 2019:
What’s Missing In The Agile Manifesto: The Agile Mindset
The Agile Mindset is critical to work successfully and effectively in an agile environment, nevertheless it is often forgotten. We are two psychologists who will give a definition and put the spotlight on understanding The Agile Mindset and its relevance for organizations as well as individuals.
As we experienced often the “problem of agile methods”, as we call it, we decided to put our focus of research on The Agile Mindset. Organizations in Switzerland often change their structure and adapt to an agile method – and think they are agile then – forgetting about the human being which has been adapting to a classical structure for years or even decades. The Agile Mindset is not only about acting agile (applying methods) but also about the thinking and feeling in an agile way. Currently we are developing a self-evaluation tool for The Agile Mindset and would be happy to share our results.
