Team Contract

Create a team contract that specifies how your team will operate.

Here are some suggestions for items to include

  • Choose a team name to replace the pro forma one (e.g. Team B) that you were given.
  • Decide on a weekly meeting time.
  • Decide how to organize your team's folder on Google Drive.
  • Agree upon a team manager charged with making things happen—facilitating meetings, providing team materials, wrangling technology, dividing work, etc. You can rotate this job—or not.
  • Perform process checks, as often as every meeting, to keep the team healthy.
  • Arrange methods for remote participation.
  • Specify desired individual behaviors, e.g.
    • Attending meetings on time
    • Working hard
    • Respecting and helping others
    • Reading the text and assignment before starting to work

2.     Upload it to your team's folder, which you should find in this Google Drive folder.
