The OGC has a structure built around 4 programs: Standards Development, Interoperability, Marketing and Compliance. For the most part this structure has served the community well with Standards Development focussing on technology standards and the Interoperability Program looking at implementation of these standards within particualr domains.

However, there have been occasions where disconnects between the programs has caused tension and hampered progress. As the OGC Standards Development effort moves further into the domains (ie. Water, Energy, etc), it is likely that greater coordination between the standards focussed activities and the Interoperability Program will be necessary. At present the OGC structure relies on relationships between individuals to manage these overlaps. Perhaps something more formal might be needed.
