What is a Working Group?

A working group is a defined set of people, usually coming from multiple teams or disciplines, with a clear problem to overcome. Some have very specific goals and disband after a few months, others have existed over multiple years and evolved over time.

The basic steps of a Working Group are:

1. Establish a Goal.
2. Designate a Facilitator.
3. Define Operations.
4. Set Milestones.
5. Operate Transparently.
6. Evaluate Your Process.
