Summary As stated in the focal article, learning agilityrefers to ‘‘the ability to come up to speedquickly in one’s understanding of a situation,and move across ideas flexibly inservice of learning both within and acrossexperiences’’ (DeRue, Ashford, & Myers,2012). A critical element of learning agility,then, is making connections between experiences,especially experiences that occur inseemingly distinct and unrelated situations.DeRue et al. highlight three cognitive processesas being important for making suchconnections: cognitive simulations, counterfactualthinking, and pattern recognition.Together, these three processes capture,respectively, individuals’ abilities to imaginepossible future situations, consider howpast situations may have differed, and to‘‘connect the dots’’ between past and futuresituations.
