nEXT Generation Project Work Groups
The executive sponsors and project steering committee worked together to name work groups and appoint members to serve on them. The steering committee chose from 429 nominations of 300 individuals, including 40 nominations for county government officials and nominations for colleagues representing 61 counties, three tribes and three UW System campuses.

- Program Development: Responsible for assessing and recommending changes to how programs are planned, developed, delivered, implemented, and evaluated.
- Support: Responsible for assessing and recommending changes to how staff and organizational structures are supported administratively.
