Yves Hanoulle is asking a question each day for people to think about, through his @Retroflection Twitter account. Each day someone is invited to respond, and today I have been asked to answer:
What does being a team really mean (as opposed to the way the word is often misapplied)
To “be a team” in my experience, means to:
- Share goal(s), to have a common purpose for working together
- Commit collectively to getting work done, in a spirit of collaboration
- Respect each other’s differences
- Trust that each person is competent, will raise issues and follow through on commitments
- Have the courage to remove obstacles in the team’s path, including resolving conflicts within the team
Those familiar with Scrum will notice my team attributes are based on the 5 core Scrum values.
These attributes are not easy to attain. It takes time to become a team, and a lot of hard work. Just ask my wife.
Now it is your turn to answer: what does being a team mean to you?
I’m apart of a debate team and we all share that we wanna become lawyer when we get older.
I think it is the willingness to up and beyond to help someone or other people acomplish a goal in a safe manner..you are responsible for me and im responsible for you…
