Working Agreements Scrum

Working agreements, also known as team standards, are guidelines developed by teams on how they should work together to create a positive productive process. Work agreements are the rules/disciplines/processes that the team is ready to follow, without making themselves more effective and simplistic about the self-administered aspects of the Scrum. These agreements help the team develop a common understanding of what it means to work as a team. Scrum.org “Updates to the Scrum Guide: The 5 Scrum values is take center” www.scrum.org/resources/blog/5-scrum-values-take-center-stage Work agreements must be checked at the end of each sprint during the retrospective. As soon as team members feel that they are doing well with each agreement and that there is something else that needs to be addressed/discussed and added as a working agreement, they can replace it with another consensus agreement. I had never been a big fan of employment contracts. Of course, I knew what they were, I knew what they had to do, I had even integrated one or two versions into some Agile classes that I had taught, but I never understood how powerful the development process of it can be! Whether you work in a scrum team or not, an easy conversation, in which we recognize the new normality of our broader context and the impact it has had on the way we work, shows empathy. Teamwork agreements should describe how team members work together to create a positive productive process. For each team member, the only way to do that is to add their two cents to the development of these policies. The views of all members are important and inclusion is the glue that keeps the agreement in common. Kelli, our PO, said: “We were unknown and we specifically deprived the people on whom we depended so heavily on basic amenities. Once we were able to get clarity from teammates who were tooth and nail, we were able not only to be more accommodating, but also to build a certain degree of confidence.

We were able to complete part of the work time to counter the movement of women and allow the use of the canteen. This also in the month following the meeting of the employment contract, which leads the team to show up on time. Trust needs a lot of time to build. I would say that this day is the basis of a closer working relationship that develops to very tight in the course of 8 months. I would say that the biggest success factor in the ongoing relationship with the Indian team has been to humanize it. After that meeting and over time, we began to engage on a deeper level, to generate a personal interest in them and to ask them what their weekend was like and what they were doing to celebrate the feast of X. We tried different games at the beginning of the stand-up to get everyone talking and we found that Trivia was very effective. Not only were they engaged, but we got to know the commonalities, because they also know who Bart Simpson is, how they are at least as intelligent, if not smarter in global geography, as we are. After 8 months, I changed my role in my company.

What was really worth 2 months later, I received an IM from Abdul, one of the Indian team members, who registered with me to see what life was like in my new role. A work agreement is a short series of policies developed by the team for the team that define the team`s expectations. A well-written agreement should help create and strengthen a clear and shared understanding of all team members about what they recognize as good behaviour and for good communication. It is generally referred to as a single “work agreement,” but in reality it consists of many individual agreements for each subject or subject.
