While facilitators are responsible for the process, it is participants who are responsible for and manage the content. Let’s define those things now and see how this works in a facilitated meeting.
The subjects for discussion, the task or problem being solved, the decisions made, the agenda items, the goals. These cannot be changed.
The methods and procedures used: how group relations are maintained, the facilitation tools being used, the rules or norms set, the group dynamics, the climate.
