AgileConnection | Creating Team Norms

AgileConnection | Creating Team Norms | Go teams! | Scoop.it
In their eagerness to embark on a new project, project teams sometimes overlook an essential aspect of their effort—building a relationship among team members, which will foster not just a successful project outcome, but also a satisfying work experience. Investing in relationship building is invariably less costly and time-consuming than recovering from the divisiveness and conflict that may result from its absence. And that's where team norms come in.
callooh's insight:

Creating team norms and accountability frameworks is an important part of creating a strong team. Think even after the formation stage, teams should consider revisiting team norms and see if expressed ones are honored and if new ones need to be established.
