Within the context of innovation most people think of facilitation just in terms of leading brainstorming or idea generation sessions. While facilitation is a key element of success in those situations there is so much more in the innovation process that benefits from the power of masterful facilitation.
Skilled process facilitation can help to address some of the critical challenges that prevent groups from being successful. Lack of focus, multiple tangents, failure to reach consensus, discussions that go on forever, conflict among and between group members, meetings that are less than productive, uneven contribution and participation, and failed momentum are challenges that can significantly derail your problem-solving, innovation and change efforts.
