It’s never clear who gets to make decisions 😡

The way we’re working isn't working

Our struggle to overcome these tensions makes work harder than it has to be. Remote work has only made it worse.

Murmur takes your team from @#%! to clarity through the power of agreements

Working agreements are living documents that define how teams get work done. Teams who co-create and evolve their ways of working through agreements are happier and more effective.

What kind of agreements?

Nearly everything you've ever argued about at work. If it's about how teams collaborate, Murmur probably supports it.

Go from a blank page to something everybody loves. No meeting required.

Murmur manages the entire decision process automatically and asynchronously. Get faster, more thoughtful feedback without chasing your colleagues.

Draft

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.

Understand

Everyone has a chance to ask questions.

Before we criticize, let’s take a moment to understand what’s on the table and why.

Improve

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.

Finalize

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.

Refresh

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.

Features that keep your ideas moving

Move through a proven process

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.

Stop reinventing the wheel

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.

Keep what works, ditch what doesn’t

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.
