As usual with a Scrum Master, good preparation pays off. Consider informing the team in advance of the categories/areas of the agreement. “Becoming a team means we are committed to working together and supporting each other in our common goals. It is important to remind the team that these actions are not even triggered. They can (and should) change if we learn more about cooperation. Retrospectives are the right time to take action that will change an existing working agreement if we recognise that this is an obstacle to better cooperation. However, in my experience as an agile consultant, the most productive product development teams all have one thing in common: consensus. They all felt involved, listened to and respected and could clearly establish the link between their individual goal and the vision of the product or project.
