'Intro to Mental Models'
As agile practitioners who focus on business agility, we can’t help but recognize that humans sometimes develop blind spots and mental biases.
A mental model is a concept, framework, or worldview that is used to explain how something works. Mental models are the tools we use to try to make sense of things and to help generate ideas. They shape individuals’ perceptions and beliefs, ultimately driving how people derive meaning and define solutions. To be useful, however, the models have to be applied in the right context and at the right time. To use them well, you have to know them well and practice using them.
