  • For members of the IAP2 Affiliates or IAP2 Federation International Associates.

Registration is closed

Public participation practitioners understand the need to involve others in decision making. It builds connections, increases buy-in and reduces blind spots. But too often, once that input has been given, it enters a “black box” of mystery and, seemingly magically, out pops a decision that may appear to bear little resemblance to the advice received. This course will help participants plan and facilitate effective group collaboration by being explicit about how decisions will be made, by whom, and based on what considerations, before actually making them. Learn tips and techniques for designing and leading collective decision-making processes that are not only more transparent and defensible, but ultimately quicker and wiser too.

Participants will leave the course with:

  • Greater conscious awareness of how decisions are or could be made.

  • Specific considerations to break down a decision-making process into its component parts.
  • Techniques for effectively facilitating a group decision-making process.
  • A high energy, engaging learning experience to make the learning content more sticky and memorable.
