The Project Core Team provides function and workstream direction as needed. It is responsible for overall project delivery (data and process inputs, etc.), and ensure activities align with VisionMap and coordinated to achieve key milestones. The committee will also evaluate issues and opportunities, drive toward resolution, collaborate with key stakeholders needed to support quick decision making, report status for your workstream on a weekly basis, and ensure activities impacting other areas are communicated.

This team makes up to 80% of decisions, and meets weekly for updates, progress, status and cross-workstream collaboration.
