From an agile implementation perspective, emphasizing the art of facilitation is an incredibly powerful tool for creating a culture of collaboration, and then leveraging that culture as a springboard to organizational transformation.  With strong facilitators at the gateway between business and IT, within IT delivery teams, and at key intersection points within an organization, the challenges to achieving organizational agility diminish. Strong facilitators bring forth the wisdom of teams and provide a container for self-organization. Facilitation is the cornerstone of servant leadership.

After 5 minutes of processing the outputs, participants will then engage in a modified “World Café” style exercise and use brainwriting to provide input on topics related to facilitating individual and team empowerment.
