Anyone, who ran a meeting or a workshop, knows how hard it can be to get any meaningful result out of it - be it decision, consensus on a topiс or anything else. But there are rather simple and structured ways to increase the probability success of a good group meeting, and good books written about this topic.
In this article I would like to share with you the mindmap of a great book "The Secrets of Facilitation", written by M.Wilkinson. This is a big (400+ A4-sized pages) study book, full of checklists, advice and case studies, so it takes a while to read it. But the content covers many different scenarios, from traditional strategic workshops to conferences, virtual meetings and even some guerrilla facilitation tactics for participants.
Below you can a mindmap (tree-like diagram) image with the ideas from this book. As I said, the book itself is organized in a very practical way - each chapter has a summary, wrap-up and a checklist, so you can start using it right from the start. Click on the image to get the original size source.
This mindmap is also available as an interactive html file.
