“A facilitator is the custodian of the consensus process, a servant-leader whose purpose is to help the group make the best decisions possible.”
– B. Briggs
Companies wanting to align their people around a strategy need to think carefully about the process they follow. It is easy to get into a room and talk for a day or two while capturing a number of points on flip charts.
