It depends decisively on the quality of the facilitation whether the output drawn from discussion groups or creative round tables is meaningful in terms of quantity and quality alike.
Since important issues usually have a strongly emotional impact on people, Itokala prepares each facilitation intensively not only in terms of its content. Dealing with individual participants in advance helps to keep the flow of the event consistently close to the theme.
The issue here is not only steering the process in a structured manner. The point is to bring all potentials on board and be disciplined in keeping the goal in mind.
This is the course of Itokala:
- discussion concept with stringently structured themes
- lively moderation and visualization techniques
- casual, consistent motivation of participants
- documentation and follow-up of all results
