Facilitating Group Meetings 

  • Many types of groups benefit from having a charter. Why is that?​​ A research study demonstrates that teams with charters are better positioned to adapt to disruptions, which in turn enhances their performance. A team charter can provide continuity, or a baseline, when (a) members exit and new members join the team, or (b) members change their role in a team. Read the study: Sverdrup, T. E., Schei, V., Tjolsen, O. A. (2017).
