Team principles

On my new team we’ve just started our first proper iteration. We’ve agreed to commit to the following principles:

  • No multi-tasking
  • All new or changed code must be thoroughly unit tested
  • No more than 2 pieces of work in “Active Work” at any time (our team is 3 developers)
  • We always work on the highest priority task
  • Our definition of done is “In UAT”
  • Leave it in a better condition than you found it
  • No hidden work
  • No overtime
  • No disruptions
  • Don’t SysTest your own work (we don’t have a tester yet)
Have you done something similar? What are your team’s principles?
