L&D: Facilitating a Group Process to Build In the Quality Quickly

I’ve Been Facilitating Analysis & Design & Client Review Sessions Since 1979

And while it can sometimes be painful – it is always much quicker. 3 weeks or 3 months Analysis efforts – done in 3 days.


Analysis of the Performance requirements and the Enabling Knowledge/Skills.


3 weeks or 3 months Design efforts – done in 3 days.


I even facilitate the Project Steering Team – the client and key stakeholders – in reviews of the Analysis and Designs – and because the Analysis and Design was constructed by the people handpicked by the Project Steering Team – it’s usually goes quickly and without drama and major changes. No circling back in endless review cycles.


Bring the Voices of the Customer – the Voices of the Master Performers – the Voices of Performance – In to Your Processes – use a facilitated Group Process!
