Working Agreements Retrospective

I ask these questions to make sure everyone understands better and more deeply what it would mean to have the ball as part of the working arrangement. It is important to remind the team that these actions are not even triggered. They can (and should) change as we learn more about collaboration. Retrospectives are a good time to take a step that changes an existing work arrangement when we realize that this is a barrier to better collaboration. That`s what we did in our retrospectives. It can also be a separate meeting for yourself. As many people as I have to thank for helping me on this journey, I want to start by thanking the teams that have really grown through this process. Without them, I would not have been able to understand the power of work arrangements and that it is more about the journey of self-discovery than the construction of words. I would especially like to thank Kelli Derum, the PO for the team. A few years later, I turned to her and she was more eager than ever to help her. I especially enjoyed the discussions we had and the time she spent while she had just had a baby! I also enjoyed the open comments she shared, which I recorded with minimal editing. Special thanks to my wife Deema for encouraging me to apply.

She has always been a source of strength for me and has helped me find the strength to keep going when needed! A special thank you to my company and my bosses who, although anonymous, remain grateful to them for allowing me to share my story. Finally, I can`t find the right words to thank my shepherdess Susan Burk for her valuable support, insight and, most importantly, flexibility. Susan helped me reinvent the approach several times and focus on the essentials. Thank you, my shepherd, I wouldn`t have done it without you! And I sincerely believe so! 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. The Agile team consisted of eleven employees spread across both locally in Texas and remotely in Mumbai, India. Members of the local Texas team included both the SM and PO, as well as two engineers: a CTO and a senior developer. They worked from home three days a week, but were at our head office for at least two days. The DM and PO were almost always present in the office. The Team from India consisted of seven engineers, one of whom was the supervisor and indeed our team leader from India. The other members of the Indian team played various other roles in the development of our solution.

The team was nearing the end of its current sprint and would hold its team retrospectively the next day. Fortunately, the timing worked. I was invited to attend the retrospective and meet the whole team as Steve begins to ask for proposed deals in his first area of interest: Daily Scrum Start Time. After all possible working arrangements, it uses the Decision-Maker Protocol[2] to quickly seek consensus. .
