Creating a team narrative is a simple and effective means to help team members understand where everyone fits in the team context, engendering a sense of responsibility for and pride in their own work while demonstrating respect for their teammates' work. Learn how to build trust, encourage communication, and accelerate your Agile team using time-honored Viking techniques.
