First Things First - Creating Agile Team Charters
Many agile initiatives suffer from a feeble launch. As Aristotle once stated “Well begun is half done”. Performing the activities associated with developing a sound charter can help increase the likelihood of success for a team or organization .
Beginning with the end in mind, we use retrospective techniques to develop consensus around objectives, vision, and mission. In this workshop we introduce the components of a good charter and how those components help focus the teammates toward a common goal. In addition, the development of the recommended charter components ensures that key questions are succinctly answered during the kickoff of a team.
Participants will learn the various types of charters and their recommended content. During the workshop activity teams will develop a complete charter based team of their choice or a provided case study.
