The things you agree on can be included in your official team agreement (use the tool your team wants to document: Google Docs, Word, Wikis, etc.). In every team, there will be things you don`t agree on. It doesn`t matter. Document these things as well. At least everyone knows where the team is not aligned. So, team agreements. In many of the interviews I do with remote teams, I hear that basic policy development helps reduce misunderstandings. Through my workshops, I learn that very few companies have team agreements. So I wanted to talk a little bit about the process and the experience of the Happy Melly team, which is completely isolated, in the hope that they will show how to establish a team agreement and what the process might look like for you.
