Facilitation is the art and practice to make meetings easier (from the latin root “facilis”), more effective, fun and productive for all the parties involved. The facilitator is an impartial guide of the group process, and is supported by active participants who help taking roles like time keeper, minutes taker, vibes watcher, and others. Essential elements are a clear and transparent Agenda, a shared and well-know decision making method and a solid plan for follow-up activities.
