Working Agreement Workshop

Allow at least 30 minutes to reach a group agreement. Keep the agreement for future meetings or workshops with the same group, but check each time to make sure everyone is still happy with it. For example, you can add something to the agreement. The ICC workflow is just one way to create an agreement. The importance is not in the method. It`s about reviewing everyone`s assumptions and documenting the points the team agrees on. Don`t try too hard to find a perfect teamwork agreement. The Working Agreement Canvas, like everything else in the context of an agile team, evolves as we learn more. The longer we work together, the more we learn from each other and what improves (or hinders) our work dynamics as a team. Some of what we are now putting on the canvas of the labour agreement will be terribly irrelevant in a few weeks or months, while new things will emerge (. B, for example, new additions to standards and guidelines) will require special attention and, of course, will end up on the canvas of the employment agreement. It is ok. It shows that we are constantly learning, evolving and improving.

Having a team name that all team members can relate to is one aspect of determining the team`s unique identity. A team name must be created (and accepted) by the team itself. There are many anecdotal reports[2] about how getting together under a common team name helps the team work much more easily and efficiently (plus, it`s fun to come up with a good team name together!) At a recent web workshop I hosted, and since there were so many Harry Potter fans in the band, they decided to call themselves Team Slytherin. They should have heard the laughter when they tried to come up with that name! I suspect that holding a session with a team to help them initiate a work arrangement is the most common workshop I have facilitated in recent years. And I learned a lot about what works for me (and what doesn`t). In my experience, this approach works equally well for the agile team, the department`s management group and the steering committee team. In this blog, I document how I made these sessions possible. Welcome to the Collaboration Superpowers podcast.

My name is Lisette and I interview people and companies that do great things remotely. Welcome to another episode, all of them. Today we are going to talk about team agreements. But first, I`d like to announce that I`ve teamed up with another Learning 3.0 facilitator. And we`ll be offering a distance learning photo in London on July 25. So, if you`re curious about what it is, keep an eye out for the Superpower Collaboration newsletter. Work arrangements are a simple and powerful way to create explicit guidelines for the type of work culture you want for your team. They remind everyone how to engage in respectful behavior and communication. In this article, we`ll help you understand why these agreements are useful and how you can help your team create their own agreements. .
