5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Nov. 13 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Although I had never facilitated a meeting before, this book provided me with plenty of good practical ideas and just the right amount of theory to help me successfully facilitate a major brainstorming meeting. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to get up to speed quickly on the subject of facilitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite book on facilitation Aug. 22 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've been facilitating for several years; I often have people ask for a book recommendation , and this is always the one I name. You will find this book useful if you are facilitating for the first time, or if you are an old pro.
Since you can read the table of contents for this book, I won't repeat it here. My favorites are the model (mentioned in several other reviews) and the different ways to build consensus.
There are other books that have more in depth coverage of each of the topics. What Kaner and his colleagues have done is get to the "gems" of those books for you. It is as if a friend read a bunch of literature on this topic and boiled it all down into one easy-to-use manual. (No, I don't know any of the authors :-))
My only complaint about this book is the format. I find the graphics and the multiple fonts a little difficult to read. I usually hand out the book with the disclaimer "it looks a little hokey, but the content is really solid." If you can move past the graphic design, you'll love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars How To July 5 2001
Format:Paperback
This book takes apart the process of participatory decision-making and gives practical, easily workable ways to learn and teach it. It's the best how-to I have seen on this subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Basic Facilitation Skills Aug. 14 2000
Format:Paperback
Facilitator's Guide to Participatory Decision-Making provides trainers and facilitators with skills beyond basic facilitation skills training. If you are knowledgable of how facilitation differs from leading and managing, then this is the next book for you.
Of particular use is the model of how participatory decsion making occurs. Understanding this model and sharing it with teams (and management) that you facilitate will take the guess work out of team decision making.
Included also are suggested tools to use at different points in the process of decision making.
Overall, a great resource for facilitators. Useful for both profit and non profit environments.
