By facilitation we mean the application of a rigorous and empirical methodology, together with your internal "experts", to analyze critical issues, identify root causes, develop and select innovative solutions.
Paradoxically it is precisely because the solutions are unique to your company that this approach requires structured and tested methodologies.
It also requires a facilitator with excellent business knowledge as well as a good grounding in applied psychology.
Why the facilitation approach? Because it achieves three important things:
- Surprising employee involvement. Once employees are led to gain a comprehensive view of how the company works, they better understand the impact of their own work on that of their coworkers and on the company as a whole.
- Solutions that are much more bold and innovative than those that would be accepted if suggested by management or by consultants.
- Enthusiastic support for the necessary changes needed to achieve company objectives.
