Facilitation Services

USI @ Innovation Pointe also provides Facilitation Services to businesses and non-profits throughout Indiana.

Facilitation is the process of designing and implementing a successful business meeting of a group of people who want to achieve a common goal, whether it be creative-problem solving, making decisions or exchanging ideas and information. A facilitator helps the group by offering a structure in which to make a collective decision, but is not there to lead, distract or entertain.

For more information on Facilitation, check out this Tedx Talk.
