A Different Perspective on Team Ground Rules – The Team Operating Agreement from Gantthead

January 4, 2012

How we set up the basic team operating principles at the beginning of the project greatly influences the project outcomes.  By determining and communicating how the team will communicate, make decisions, resolve conflicts and interact with one another at the beginning of the project, we establish a firm foundation for developing an empowered and successful team.  Whether we call these operating guidelines a team charter, team ground rules or Team Operating Agreement, as Gantthead suggests, we need to discuss these issues with our teams and get their commitment at the beginning of our projects or programs.

Gantthead is an excellent resource for Project and Program Managers.  Many great tools and resources are available with  free registration.

Check out the Team Operating Agreement and see if meets your team needs.
