Agile Team Agreement: Topaz Cohort

Every Agile team should have a Team Agreement aka Agile Social Contract. It’s your agreement for how you want to work together. It’s the Scrum Master’s job to facilitate the team to create it and revisit it occasionally, at least quarterly.

  • Environment/culture: Relaxed, informal fun, psychological safety, ok to fail w/o judgement, to be successful and celebrate each other when we do
  • Meeting times: Saturdays (12noon – 2pm cst), Sundays (12:30-2:30cst / 1:30-3:30est / 6:30-8:30uk), M-F Daily Scrum: 1:30cst/2:30est/7:30uk
  • Definition of “Ready:” Clear understanding of what needs to be done, persona, standard story format, don’t get about detail, just talk about it
  • Definition of “Done:” PO accepts the story
  • How we want to be together around conflict: diplomatic, see it as an opportunity to grow, look for a solution in it, give 2 pieces of positive feedback for each 1 piece of “improvement” feedback, embrace the feedback with respect in mind / respect first, ask first if the other person even wants your feedback
  • Success criteria for earning a recommendation to two Recruiters or Hiring Managers: demonstration live in final session of competently leading all the Scrum events: Sprint Review, Sprint Planning (including Planning Poker), Sprint Retrospective, Daily Scrum. This will also involve a LinkedIn Testimonial from Coach Kelly.


The purpose of the Buddy system is to support each other in your journey to the job. Meet with your Buddy at least weekly. Make it fun, informal and useful. We’ll change Buddies weekly.

  • Week one: Chanelle/Chrystal, Claire/David/Richard, LaRondie/Olu/Siewe
  • Week two: Siewe/Chanelle, Chrystal/Claire/David, Richard/LaRondie/Olu
