A facilitator is an individual who enables groups and organizations to work more effectively.

To give you an impression how it could benefit your organization:

  • Engage all knowledge and experience of the people involved
  • Assist groups in planning how to achieve their objective
  • Short term involvement
  • Content neutral

This is relevant since many organizations work project based and need time together to align their strategy and progress.

Another type of facilitation is the multi-stakeholder approach, for example the Wicked Problems Plaza, a method that aims to solve complex issues and promote partnership.
