How to be a Visible Pathway Project Facilitator

A digital Project consulting Project for Project Facilitators to support their company to improve.

Make sure you’re prepared!

Project Framework

Traditional consultants usually do two things:

– provide the knowledge and experience

– facilitate sessions and move the project along

The Visible Pathway Project provides the former, you the latter. To be a Project Facilitator you don’t need to have any prior facilitation knowledge nor expertise in the Project subject matter.

In any project you need an engaged sponsor. What is this role in a Visible Pathway Project along with a Project Facilitator?

Facilitating Groups

FAQs

Why do we need a Project Facilitator?

A traditional consultant usually plays two roles when they engage with a customer:

1) provider of the knowledge and experience necessary for the business improvement
2) facilitator of the improvement, working with the team to ensure that work gets done

In a Visible Pathway Project the content provides the knowledge and experience, however you need to provide the facilitation. This short Project is to help prepare the chosen person for this Project Facilitator role.

What skills does a PF need?

The ideal PF has certain attributes:

– a good listener
– interested in people and the business
– a good organiser
– happy to speak up when needed, even to those more senior!
– determined and reliable
– You do not need any specific knowledge about the subject of the Project, don’t worry!

How does it work?

How to be a Project Facilitator is delivered entirely using the Visible Pathway online platform. It contains a mix of audio and video Episodes coupled with multiple downloadable resources to help you.

All of the content is yours to re-visit and use in perpetuity so you can train multiple Project Facilitators if you wish. No external consultant is involved in the delivery, you self-serve everything online at your pace and the Project is totally free, simply log-in and get going.

How long does it take?

The whole Project will likely take no longer than 1 hour but you’ll probably re-visit the content numerous times to refresh your memory. It’s designed primarily for the person chosen to be the Project Facilitator, however you will need to involve the Project Sponsor (often the CEO) to work with you for about 30 minutes during the first Episode. You must complete the Project before your company starts its first Visible Pathway Project to ensure that you are prepared to help your company achieve its goals.

Who is this for?

This Project is for the person designated as the Project Facilitator for any Visible Pathway Project. The first Episode also includes the Project Sponsor (usually the CEO or equivalent). It’s totally free, simply log-in and get going.

I'm an experience Project Manager, do I need this?

If you already have Project Management experience it’s doubtful that this Project will teach you very much in a general, however there are some specific things that are important to Visible Pathway Projects. We think therefore that you should go through it anyway, just to make sure you don’t miss anything and look silly!
