Hot Team

It is not a standing committee. It is an ad hoc, get-it-done-soon group with a small number of highly competent people who know the ropes and who are impatient with bureaucracy. They also know all of the dodges and so are very hard to thwart.

Despite the high quality of this group, it is important to recognize that a key ingredient is urgency. The group does not have a lot of time to spend or resources to squander. It has to hustle.

Put the same people on a standing committee and their effectiveness would shrink.
