An overview of things to consider when setting ground rules for a group work project. It covers rules around personal conduct and working practice, as well as an outline of why setting group rules is a useful exercise at the start of a project.

The natural differences that people tend to have can cause problems later if the group haven’t talked about it at the start. For this reason it is a very good idea to set out your own ground rules.

Generally these come under two main headings:

  • Rules about personal conduct
  • Rules about working practice
