Facilitation is the skills used in business and organisational meetings to ensure the designing and running of successful meetings.

it is, particularly used to help deal with the most difficult, contentious matters and to help a group find solutions to problems that have bogged it down.

It is about helping a group have a productive and successful meeting

It serves the needs of any group who are meeting with a common purpose, whether it be making a decision, solving a problem, or simply exchanging ideas and information. It does not lead the group but helps it to define the tasks and directions in the light of the present challenges
