Our inability to overcome these tensions makes work harder than it has to be. Remote work is only making it worse.
Agreements are collaborative documents that clarify team norms, processes, policies, and other ways of working. Teams that make and keep agreements are happier and more effective.
Nearly everything you've ever argued about at work. If it's about how teams collaborate, Murmur probably supports it.
Anyone on your team can draft and propose an agreement.
Start from scratch, use a template, or copy a public agreement and make it your own.
Everyone has a chance to ask questions.
Before we criticize, let’s take a moment to understand what’s on the table and why.
Now it’s time for suggestions.
How can we make the agreement better, safer, or more inclusive? Next, the proposer has a chance to refine and revise.
Is it safe to try?
This is where we flip the script on the usual top down approach. Everyone on the team has the right to consent or object. But we don’t get stuck. Objections become resolutions and teams move forward.
Everyone can see what is working and what isn’t.
Each agreement has its own feedback rhythm, pulsing the team on followthrough and satisfaction. When an agreement expires, the team is prompted to make a choice to refresh, renew, or retire it.
Murmur guides teams through a proven process that is inclusive, safe, and fast. It was designed with remote teams and busy colleagues in mind, so it keeps things moving asynchronously.
Murmur provides templates for every major agreement type and offers access to public agreements from some of the world’s most famous teams. No more blank page anxiety.
Test and scale breakthrough practices and behaviors. Murmur lets you see what’s working and what isn’t. The system collects and radiates feedback constantly—pushing teams to get better every day.
