Facilitation: 12 Principles of Process Facilitation - Principle 10: Closing


This is Part 10 of the 12 Principles of Process Facilitation.

The goal of facilitation is to make things easier and faster. During the session, a facilitator promotes the easiness and speed of discussion, ideas generation, conflicts resolution and finally decisions making. However, nothing will happen if the decisions made were not enforced.

The function of Closing is to ensure all decisions are being put into action.

3 core items must be reviewed at this point:

1. Are all the Objectives being accomplished?

2. Are all Outstanding Items being discussed?

3. Are all Actions agreed being assigned?

Closing is always a new opening, an opening for all the works to be actually done!
