5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-have, go-to resource for managers, program managers, consultants to be more effective leading groups. 4. Mai 2014
Von ModernParzival - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For those who work in organizations - larger or small - in which results are achieved through meetings, committees, work groups, CoP's, etc, effective group work is crucial. The methodology and wisdom in this book - when applied with persistence and humility - can make significant, positive improvements in the work of the teams and groups in which we participate.

The previous edition of the Facilitator’s Guide has been an incomparable resource for designing and leading more effective social architecture to get work done across diverse teams, functions and regions in my complex organization. The lessons and guidance I’ve taken from it have been nothing short of transformative for both my practice and my career.

To be clear, this is not a theoretical guide but rather its design is much more like a "job aid" or "field guide" - meaning it's a "hands on" reference in how to design and lead meetings/groups of people more effectively. As such there is a wealth of tools, techniques, templates, and guidelines. But throughout, there is also decades of empirical wisdom about WHY these methods, tools, etc. are effective.

Personally, I'm very excited by the new, expanded material and the only downside I see is that the thicker volume will be quite a tome to schlep around, as I like to have it with me to scan and review when designing or refining significant group events.

Bottom line: a must have reference for managers, program managers, consultants and not just "facilitators".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Even if you have the first and second edition you need to buy this third edition. It's even better. 12. Juni 2014
Von Geoff Ball - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
New sections include process design, classic facilitator challenges, and how to teach Kaner's core concepts, as well as additional process tools.

Given how good the first two editions are, it is remarkable that the third edition is even better. Kaner has included strategies for teaching the groups you work with Kaner's core model of the ‘diamond of participatory decision-making.’ And, yes, "Photocopying portions of this book is encouraged for the purpose of supporting a group you are facilitating." He actually wants facilitators to be able to use the book in becoming better at facilitating group decision-making.

Even as a facilitator with 40 years of experience, I still got many ideas and deeper understanding of facilitation from reading through this book and its earlier editions. The 30 classic facilitator challenges, which lays out the problem, the typical mistake, and a more effective response, are particularly helpful. Another way in which Kaner helps the reader is the inclusion of a number of real-life examples that put his concepts ‘on the ground’ where they can been used. This book takes you through the steps needed to make facilitation work for you and your groups.

And, if you are interested in how facilitation got started, I recommend your taking the time to read the Foreward by Michael Doyle.

I suggest that you read through the entire book fairly rapidly using the graphics as a way to hang on to the concepts presented, and that you then pick out sections that seem to be particularly useful to you and put them in practice.

The book makes good reading. And even better, if you use it as a guide, it will lead you along the path to more efficient and more effective participatory decision-making.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A superb book 28. April 2014
Von Dmitry Lazarev - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I would never read this book for leisure, but I'm a facilitator and this is one of my all time favorite facilitation books (I start reading this since 2d edition) which dramatically changed my practice as a facilitator. I think it should be required reading before anyone can lead a meeting. There are many tools and technics. The point, to use them, not just be impressed by or understand concepts. BUY THIS BOOK AND USE IT.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It is my judgment and the judgment of many of my close colleagues that this as the best text for both skilled and novice facilit 18. Januar 2015
Von Paul A. Lipscomb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Do you lead (or participate in) meetings in which all members need to participate to come to clear and strongly supported decision?
Do you facilitate or participate in groups with diverse, even conflicting interests, which need to start or keep making progress on some shared-interest endeavor?
Do you want a tool-kit for facilitation skill building?
This is the book for you.

This facilitators guide to participatory decision-making (perfect for the title), guides leaders and participants with clear language and vivid examples, through:
-- founding principles of participatory decision making
-- fundamentals skills/techniques/challenges of being a facilitator
-- key to reaching sustainable decisions
-- bringing groups to effective closure that enhances the chance for future effective decision-making.

Note: You can click on the icon of the book and check out the table of contents. Worth a look.

I started with the first edition and bought this the 3rd when it came out. This text has been incredibly supportive in my work as a consultant working in small communities around Oregon, as a consultant with nonprofit boards and executives, and in my specialty area serving as interim ED/CEO in nonprofits these past 15 years. The authors have always lead workshops using their material and from these have gained timely and professional feedback. Thus the ever-better editions.

It is my judgment and the judgment of many of my close colleagues that this as the best text for both skilled and novice facilitators on this topic. As a 2nd Edition 'owner' who upgraded to this the 3rd, it has way enough new material to make it worth the price of admission!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best book on facilitation ever written 31. Mai 2014
Von LaFarfalle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you only buy one book on facilitation, make sure it's this one.
My introduction to facilitation came with the first edition of this classic work. The second edition was even better. And now, impossible as it seems, this third edition represents still further improvement.
First, the basic praise that spans all editions. I have many books on facilitation in my library and this is the only one that perfectly blends concepts and tools in a way that one can immediately apply – whether a novice or an experienced practitioner. It also connects the reader to important issues of group dynamics and decision-making that helps them understand WHY particular things are happening in groups. In short, it supports anyone involved in facilitating groups and managing participatory processes to develop better judgment and understanding. And then gives them a cornucopia of tools and skills to support that.
I was uncertain whether to purchase the new edition (given I already own the first two), but this was worth it for the new chapters on agenda design alone. The expanded material on working in the divergent, convergent and groan zones were also valuable.
There are many reasons why this book is widely referred to as the "facilitation bible" and this edition further cements its place as the ultimate guide for anyone who wants to learn or develop facilitation skills.
