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.
