Sometimes our clients know what they want to achieve ("We
know we need a strategy") but they are not sure how to get there ("Do
I involve everyone?" and "How do we start figuring out what the
strategy should be?"). In those situations, NewView can provide Process
In the early stages of Process Facilitation, NewView helps the
client define what they are trying to achieve and why. NewView then provides a
structure or process for achieving the goal. This can be as simple as an agenda
and techniques for a strategy meeting or as complex as a series of teambuilding
With NewView assuming responsibility for developing and
facilitating the process, our clients are free to focus on the content (i.e. elements of the
strategy, or working through team issues).
Process Facilitation, however, doesn't stop there. It goes
beyond helping our clients resolve a particular issue or problem. It is a
consulting method that focuses on helping our clients assess HOW they solved the
problem, thus building our clients' ability to understand and manage the process
of change in the future.
Process Facilitation is consistent with our Guiding Principles.
In particular, it helps us to partner with our clients, fit the solution to the
issues, and, most notably:
Build capability, not dependence.
Some examples of situations in which we use Process Facilitation are:
- Facilitating planning and strategy sessions
- Facilitating organizational and team goal-setting sessions
- Meeting Facilitation (for a variety of meetings)
- Team startups
- Executive Team development
