The word alone raises images of bureaucracy, slowed down deliverables, and processes that seek to create more processes.
Let’s not even get into committees that report to commitees.
The thing with committees, is they are safe.
But change that membership name to a group and it becomes something different.
The people involved are engaged, eager to work with each other and they have a common goal in mind.
Change it to a team and it becomes something even stronger – the members have worked with each other before, they know who does what on the team and where they need to move towards.
Assuming the membership hasn’t changed, changing what it is called has immediately changed your perception of what they can do, when they will do it and whether they will get it done.
