Creating new education and training programs can be complex and time-consuming.
Balancing many competing perspectives, priorities, and challenges can make it difficult to develop a successful program. Trying to facilitate this process alone can be challenging and inefficient.
To make the process more efficient and successful, it is important to partner with a facilitator who can help manage the process so you can focus on contributing to the planning process too.
What Does a Facilitator Bring to the Project?
A facilitator brings a neutral perspective and expertise in leading groups through creating new strategies. They also bring a set of tools and methods that optimize and amplify the talent and ideas of the team.
A facilitator’s role is to ensure that all voices are heard, issues are addressed, and decisions are made that result in the best outcomes.
When working with a facilitator, the team can take advantage of their experience working with different stakeholders. A facilitator can help ensure that all stakeholders’ perspectives are heard, which is essential for creating successful education and training programs. A facilitator can also help keep the process on track by setting timelines, establishing expectations, and making sure that issues are addressed quickly.
The facilitator also brings a set of tools to help streamline the process of creating education and training programs. These tools include brainstorming methods, decision-making frameworks, and project management templates. Utilizing these tools can make creating education and training programs more efficient and effective.
Benefits of Using a Facilitator to Create Education and Training Programs
There are many benefits to partnering with a facilitator when creating education and training programs. Here are some of the main benefits:
- Greater buy-in from stakeholders – A facilitator can help ensure that all stakeholder perspectives are heard and considered, resulting in greater buy-in from those stakeholders. This can help create more unity within the team, which is essential for any successful project.
- More efficient process – Having an experienced facilitator lead the group through the process can make it easier to stay focused, identify potential issues early, and make decisions quickly. This makes the overall process more efficient.
- Results that can more effectively be moved to action – With a facilitator helping to manage the process, it becomes easier to develop an actionable plan that can actually be implemented. This result is much more likely when working with a facilitator than when attempting to do it alone.
