Our facilitation services involve the design and delivery of interactive workshops to extract high-quality and consensus-based deliverables in compressed timeframes. We bring people together in ways that help them to understand one another, so they can successfully navigate through complex issues and build commitment.
Our trained facilitators will guide you through even the most contentious decision-making processes. By the way, if you think that people who just write stuff on a flipchart are “facilitators”, we have some news for you: they’re not…
Facilitation was originally developed in the 1970s by IBM Canada as part of its Joint Application Development (JAD) approach to better application design. Facilitation is now used routinely in a wide variety of areas such as strategy planning, vision creation, requirements analysis, creativity and innovation etc.
Our trained and experienced independent facilitators will have a wide range of skills and techniques within their repertoire such as group development and group dynamics, advanced communication skills, advanced listening skills, conflict resolution skills etc. Facilitation can be particularly powerful and effective in situations that are characterised by multi-direction communication, complex stakeholder environments and highly-charged politically sensitive or contentious discussions. Facilitation can be an equally effective and powerful way to define organisational visions, develop and validate strategy, get employee input, and a whole host of other applications.

“We were extremely impressed with the way in which Watt Works were able to fully understand our current context and design a clear and well-structured workshop process that allowed us to quickly gain consensus on the way forward and create a real sense of enthusiasm and commitment. Their facilitator was excellent and kept us on track whilst giving us sufficient space to discuss the important issues concerning our future vision.”
