IIBA Conference: How to Facilitate Consensual Prioritization Ranging from the Simple to the Complicated to the Complex

SPEAKER: Terrence Metz, President of MG RUSH Facilitation Training and Coaching


This workshop provides detailed training on HOW TO run effective prioritization sessions that build consensual, high-impact deliverables and outcomes.

It delivers training about facilitation skills, presentation skills, project management, and practice applying several important analytical tools. We focus on showing you how to lead groups and teams to build collaborative decisions, consensual prioritization, and cohesive actions.

This session embraces the most comprehensive, structured meeting and workshop methods available. This is NOT about singing Kum Bay Yah. The technique accelerates information gathering, drives meeting results through disciplined analysis, and improves the quality and transparency of decision-making. The content integrates proprietary methods with modern facilitative leadership skills that drive collaborative group dynamics, consensus, and commitment.
