Good business practice demands a reduction of the time people spend in training and meetings. At the same time, teams and groups must be more effective and innovative. Traditional meetings are often inefficient and one-way rather than participative and inclusive.
Most organisations in the private, public and voluntary sectors need to facilitate group work but frequently lack access to a process that meets their needs
The Pinpoint facilitation process is internationally recognised and has a number of advantages compared to other facilitation processes
- Minimum time is taken (typically 30% of that taken by other types of consultation or focus group) so it's very cost effective
- Everybody has influence on discussion and decisions - it is very participative and interactive
- Problem solving approach
- Decisions are made and agreed
- Negative conflict is eliminated
- People who are verbose or tend to hog the floor are kept in check without loss of input
- Quiet or shy people are able to contribute ideas and influence
- Opportunity for visualisation, other forms of right brain stimulation and, where appropriate, accelerated learning techniques
- Complex issues are simplified
- Action plans are produced
- Sessions are recorded visually as they progress allowing a complete record to be provided to participants - usually on CD-Rom but also as a report containing a photographic record of the event.
The PinPoint process has been used successfully during the past few years to support a wide range of organisations and businesses. It is extremely adaptable and delivers effective meetings and workshops for diverse groups and organisations.
