Face-to-face and virtual facilitation skills are needed for developing a business architecture, creating a process model, leading an improvement team, or running a meeting. Learn models and practice in all these areas.

Whether you are developing a business architecture, creating a process model, leading an improvement team, or running a meeting, great facilitation skills are crucial. You need to be able to keep people engaged, elicit the necessary information, create shared understanding and build consensus all while keeping them focused on the intended goal. Not an easy task.

This one-day interactive workshop focuses on you – the facilitator. We’ll play with models and techniques that will help you better handle tough issues like managing conflict that arises during meetings, building workshop and meeting agendas, getting folks to make and own decisions, staying on topic, engaging meeting participants, and more. This is how to be a facilitator in a business process improvement context, either with a team or with executives, face-to-face or in the virtual environment. So if you’re a project manager, business analyst, architect or leader with a desire to be more collaborative, this workshop is your first step on the road to your own process improvement.
