Intellectual Property Considerations

After a team discussion, the final consensus is to reserve the right to keep our intellectual property if the situation arises that our product is marketable.

Team Setup


  1. Facilitate team coordination and identify lacking capabilities.
  2. Establish good practice of structured, coordinated documentation.

Team Values and Norms


Define the team's expectations of its members and used as the basis for peer reviews.

Team Rules

  1. On time for meetings is +/- 5 minutes to the meeting, anything after that needs to be communicated through the group chat
  2. Personal workbook activities and assignments is on the person, does not require group to remind individuals of assignments
  3. Before contacting the customer: Contact the group in the group chat to make sure we are not asking Mike the same questions or information that we have already been told.
  4. Updating EDGE should have an assigned owner & completion date so that we don't fall behind
  5. If an owner of a certain task is overdue on 3-5 occurrences, the guide will be contacted to make sure the work for the team is properly divided
  6. GROUP CHAT (phone) is primary means of communication
