Working Group

Persons gathered together to solve a common problem or to set a particular goal. For example, a working group may be gathered to set standards for a nascent industry. A working group is expected to complete its task within a certain amount of time, usually with the publication of a paper or report. While working groups are founded as temporary, ad hoc committees, many go on to become semi-permanent bodies.
