Facilitation tips for improvisers

Viv Mcwaters

There’s also jargon around facilitation. One of my big insights at this year’s Applied Improvisation Network Conference in San Francisco was about how to explain some facilitation concepts to improvisers, especially those who are mainly theatre improvisers, and maybe unaware of some of the traps of taking what works well on the theatre stage onto the corporate or conference stage. The same is true of facilitating. Facilitating is performance.

Graphic Facilitation – I want to see more!

Michelle Laurie

Last year, I hired a graphic recorder to draw out a meeting as I facilitated it. When I looked into training, I discovered this exists in Victoria, BC and in San Francisco, California. Finding trained visual practitioners is not easy.

Using Twitter to Build Your Small Business

Portals and KM

Savage frequently trolls Twitter looking for sales leads for his five-person, $1 million company, which makes software that facilitates video sharing through a private network. This is not limited to IT firms as some San Francisco-based coffee shops and bakeries have sent tweets to tell their customers about specials and one Los Angeles taco truck uses Twitter to tell customers where its location for the day.

A ’sliding door’ moment

Viv Mcwaters

Then early in the last decade, in 2004, I discovered the Applied Improvisation Network (then known as Improv in Business) on the web and took myself off to their conference in San Francisco. Funny how things turn out.

"Collaboration and Community" by Scott London

John Tropea - Delicious Community

What form of leadership is required to facilitate the process? Does the project have some form of integrating structure, such as a cross-section of steering committees, to facilitate and coordinate decision-making and implementation? "[38] This new form of leadership has been variously defined as transformative, facilitative, or "servant" leadership. In short, "the leadership role is to convene, energize, facilitate, and sustain the process."[45]

James D makes the point that collaboration happens within organisations & that people will use any tools that come to hand. Absolutely agree with this. James goes on to say: This cycle by the way is taking place at an enterprise level, but also at the level of individual workgroups, teams and projects.

Collaboration vs sharing

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Sunday, October 14, 2007 Collaboration vs sharing James Robertson talks about collaboration tools as anti-knowledge sharing. If I understand JR correctly, his point is that collaboration tools are great for specific teams. However each team works in its own context and this leads to the creation of silos which prevents cross-organisational leveraging of this material. He also notes that this cannot be solved simply by the implementation of a search tool. I agree with him.
