What even is a workshop?

A workshop is an interactive meeting in which a group of people goes through a series of activities to achieve to solve a problem or work on a project. Workshops are often led by a facilitator and can range from a couple of hours to multiple days.

Do you need an external facilitator?

Not every workshop or retrospective you plan needs an external facilitator. Here are some pointers for you to look at if you need an external facilitator.

I need a facilitator

  • You want to be a neutral participant in the workshop you are planning.
  • You need a customized approach to achieve the goals of the workshop.
  • You want a fresh, unbiased perspective for your custom workshop.
  • Your team has struggles keeping discussions on track.
  • Every participant needs to be engaged with the content of the workshop.

I don't need a facilitator

  • An external facilitator may be more expensive than using an internal one.
  • You don't need to participate neutrally to the workshop. (If you are a team member you are not neutral.)
  • You want to moderate your own retrospective or workshop.
