Team Launch Overview:

One of the biggest levers to a successful Scrum implementation is a Team Launch. This helps the teams understand exactly what is expected of them as they move from traditional project management to Agile. Being a part of a team isn't always emphasized in waterfall but in Scrum, being on a team that works intimately together everyday in the same room is of paramount importance. Having a working team agreement, and shared upon definitions of ready and done are the first steps to achieving team spirit.
