Facilitation is the art of enabling development, learning and performance of a group or team providing shared learning, creating shared ownership and resulting in shared goals.
“Excellent facilitation can develop the capability and performance of members of a group or of a team as a whole at a rate and to a level beyond that which they thought feasible.”
