Facilitation is a common word used in a variety of different contexts. However, being a facilitator for a group and effectively facilitating strategy, operational or project meetings and/or events requires key skills and comprehensive knowledge of the principles and concepts involved.
APMG-International has partnered with experts in the facilitation field to develop a robust methodology that provides the structure that enables specialists and managers to be able to facilitate effectively. The Process Iceberg® methodology is being applied in a wide variety of organisations and scenarios. Its pragmatic, practical approach has gained a wide range of adherents in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
Working from the book Facilitation – Develop Your Expertise, APMG has developed a training program to help individuals develop the necessary expertise to become accomplished at facilitation.
