What is a committee?
A committee can be lots of different things. At work, you might see them formed to deal with projects or advise C-level management on possible changes. Even away from work, you’re likely to come across them in your local HMA, kid’s sports team or school. They’re everywhere.
That’s because it’s one of the easiest ways for a group of people to come together to either tackle a problem that needs lots of voices and expertise or manage an organization that can’t be done by one person alone. In government, lawmakers use them to scrutinize legislation and in business, companies use them to tackle specific issues either in one particular area or for the organization as a whole.
Depending on what the committee is for will determine how long it exists. An advisory committee may only exist until a specific project is complete. Whereas a management committee involved in the day-to-day running of a business will exist as long as the company does.
