Reclamation's Decision Process Guide

Core Team

Thecore team*definition is usually comprised of both formal and informal members. While members change, this team presents the most stability and institutional knowledge throughout the process. As you write your action plan, you define who you need for your core team.

Divide the labor effectively and do reality checks to ensure you have the right people and expertise. The availability of resources for your core team depends on schedule and other priorities in their work group. Recognize that core team members often serve both the team and a technical discipline-defined work group. Work group supervisors need to be aware of the client's needs and assignments for their personnel so they can allocate staff resources.

Assembling the core team early on in the process will provide a base to do the work.


Make sure decisionmakers and implementors are as much a part of your core team as possible!
