What’s the secret to successful projects and initiatives? Teamwork and effective collaboration, of course. We BAs are often the glue that help teams work well together, facilitating workshops and creating a shared understanding about the outcomes required. It’s important to set up teams for success as well as implement continuous improvement processes to ensure difficulties are resolved.
Team charters are commonly used for exactly that. However, some team charters are nothing more than a series of dot points containing generic ideas or vague statements.
The Team Collaboration Canvas is a new tool specifically designed to help BAs facilitate team chartering and retrospective sessions to create a shared vision, confirm working agreements, and support continuous improvement. It provides a simple method to capture the team’s ways of working along with team goals, ways to improve, and the context around their work environment. This session will explore the Team Collaboration Canvas and how to use it to build awesome teams.
- Understand the importance of team chartering and creating working agreements.
- Use the Team Collaboration Canvas to build successful teams and implement continuous improvement.
- Understand the context surrounding teams and how the team integrates with the greater stakeholder community.
- Implement practical techniques to create effective team collaboration.
