Hi Luis,

Speaking from my own experience (n=1) I'm not sure your assumption is
correct, that committees (like teams) are groups with a common goal. I
have found them to be people with a common focus but who arrive to the
table with individual goals; they are there to protect or further the
intertests of the party they represent.
