Facilitating Collective Intelligence

What is Collective Intelligence?


Collective intelligence is the greater intelligence that is present when a group, or organization assesses its common goals, issues, challenges and opportunities to identify the best solutions. The use of facilitation tools and techniques allows groups of individuals to collaborate in a seamless fashion so that their collective intelligence is optimized.

Key benefits of facilitation include:

Effectiveness (making the right decision)
