About this Hands-On Session

Team chartering is generally only used at the start of a project, and team charters tend to be quite universal.

In this hands-on session, we will use the 'Lego Serious Play' method to develop a team-specific team charter, which is suited to team goals and adapted continuously. You'll be able to use it in your own organisation.
