About Facilitation

Facilitation is a process in which a third party who is a trained and experienced facilitator (and is not a stakeholder) plans, develops and conducts an organized and effective process that helps a group move toward common understanding and that produces a clear result that is commonly understood and supported by all participants.

Facilitation focuses on how people participate in the process of learning or planning, not just on what gets achieved.




  • The focus is on assisting a group to come together effectively to reach a goal

  • This process is useful in helping groups to efficiently plan

  • This process is useful in assisting groups to collaboratively make decisions

  • This process is helpful when a group has not functioned well together in the past

  • This process is helpful when a new group is formed *whose members have not yet worked together

  • Group members are often more motivated to support the plans and decisions made because of their investment in the process

  • The best efforts of groups can produce better results than individual efforts
