Creating New Agreements, Policies, & Systems


The purpose of creating agreements through a policy, system, or checklist is to increase effectiveness and align our actions with our declared vision and values. When written agreements are incorporated around functions rather than people, the practice vision becomes easier to attain and our priorities become easier to accomplish. Without written agreements, it is difficult for current team members to stay accountable, train new team members, or measure progress. The consistency and predictability afforded by these agreements will improve our communication, efficiency, and success.
