Task Teams of specific duration operate within the OBPS Work Package structure (see under Governance) and under the direction of the WP Lead and support specific needs related to WP objectives. The task teams leverage, but do not duplicate, the ongoing work of other organizations considering methodology handling and best practice development.
The teams have well defined objectives, durations and outcomes in their Terms of Reference. Task Teams will be created when a topic is identified either from external sources or internal OBPS needs which require external volunteers.
