In this presentation we will discuss the process and some examples of the development of common solutions that face the LHC experiments. The LHC experiments have relied on common grid components since the design of the computing models. Recently there have been efforts to develop and support higher-level services that provide solutions to problems common to several experiments. We will discuss the process used to select prospective common solutions, some examples of successful common services, and some planning for future common development activities.
