Drawing on over 20 years of experience each, the authors contribute real-world experiences to demonstrate how project managers can use collaborative work sessions to develop key project deliverables faster, with greater quality, while also obtaining the benefits of group buy-in and ownership.

This book:

  • Goes beyond facilitation as “meeting management” to describe how to elicit, analyze, verify and translate a group’s knowledge and expertise into tangible deliverables
  • Provides explicit guidance on how to use specific facilitation and modeling techniques in a group setting
  • Provides a CD-Rom including practical tools and templates that are usable “out of the box”
  • Provides specific examples of using specialized work sessions with Six Sigma projects
  • Provides practical “how to’s” for Project Managers, Facilitators and Project Teams who need to get a team to work together toward specific project goals.
