Teams form the primary unit of structure in complex organizations. These groups unite stakeholders from across the organization to deliver an outcome, such as producing a deliverable or governing the organization. Regardless of the specific goal, teams come together in meetings to do many things, including making decisions. In this course, participants develop skills to facilitate a structured, collaborative decision-making process in the context of running an effective meeting.
Teams use MMI’s Decision-Making Game to introduce the stages and steps of the DCID™ decision-making process. Participants adopt different roles throughout the program to practice managing group dynamics. The role of team leader allows them to apply different facilitation techniques, and together, the group works through a case study to make team-based decisions.
Participants who complete the course will do the following:
- Understand the key factors that lead to consensus
- Practice using a collaborative decision-making process as a team
- Apply core facilitation techniques in a meeting
- Identify the stages of a collaborative meeting process
- Learn how a structured meeting process creates more effective, efficient meetings
