Skunk Works is used in engineering and technical fields to describe a group within an organization given a high degree of autonomy and unhampered by bureaucracy, tasked with working on advanced or secret projects. This term was popularized by a division of the same name within the Lockheed Martin corporation. Several of their successes at managing time-sensitive, complex projects have popularized the term. The term is also used analogously in other fields, especially business, to describe any self-contained, semi-autonomous work-group or committee that directly manages its own projects.
