After the introduction of the concept, you should immediately dive into the details of the agreement and cover the topics in the order in which they are listed above. Keep in mind that the organization may have policies or regulations that cover some of the topics. Invite the team to inform you of the existence of these things and include them in the teamwork agreement by reference. Ambitious but impossible – team members accept unrealistic standards of perfection or excellence. This can happen if the team is overly optimistic or idealistic, or if the team is confused about a vision statement versus a teamwork agreement. Here, your moderation job should be to limit the agreement to things that the team unanimously agrees to be achievable in an iteration/sprint/cycle/cadence. You may need to implement an anonymous moderation technique so that dissidents can express concern about the terms of the agreement without social pressure to abide by it. Collaboration tools should help you bring your team together and improve the way you work. But there`s more to work on than having the right collaboration tools. Good virtual team managers should promote team building, effective communication and group cohesion. So how can we get every team member on the same page? If the team has such a set of work arrangements, read them carefully.
If you can do so ethically, make a public written statement that you agree to abide by the team`s current working arrangements. This can be done in the form of an email to the whole team, to which you attach the working arrangements with your statement that you accept them. If you cannot ethically accept the working arrangements, make the conflict transparent with the Agile Coach ethical framework and discuss it with the relevant authority (e.g. B someone from the human resources department). The employment agreement is not a contract, but an instrument of cooperation. A good team reviews its teamwork agreement and develops it regularly. This is usually done at the retrospective team meeting, but can sometimes be done on demand. However, team participants should never force the team to change their working arrangements unless doing so for legal or governance reasons. .
