Communication concept for enterprise workplace team

This concept serves to standardize the communication channels and working methods within an enterprise grade workplace team. 

Basic rules of communication: 

  • We inform ourselves daily in the defined communication channels (obligation to get).
  • We communicate significant changes / innovations after completion in the defined communication channels (obligation to bring).
  • We use the task management tools backlog to record ideas / innovations Basic rules for orders.

By following the ground rules, we ensure the quality of work within the team, proactively take care of current issues and communicate important knowledge. 

  • Taking responsibility for the orders assigned to us
  • Adherence to deadlines
  • Demanding important decisions
  • Staying in contact with the client
  • Distributing workload as needed
  • Adhering to processes
  • Work is documented and communicated upon completion
  • Organize handoffs and substitutions

Document management: 

Documents / files / scripts are always stored in common areas so that the work status can be accessed even in the event of resignations or absences.
