Review Workshop: Finding Solutions with Bus Stop

Handbook of Professional Facilitation

In the Handbook of Professional Facilitation: Theory, Tools, and Design, Pepe Nummi—a facilitator with decades of experience working with groups - introduces a unique approach to group decision-making based on structured dialogue. People tend to shoot down new ideas, especially if the idea is not their own. Pepe Nummi is a seasoned facilitator who has dedicated his life to studying human interaction. He has solved the decision-making problem by creating a technique where people need to understand other perspectives and points of view while sharing their own. As a result, people make decisions together and engage in breakthrough decision-making. In this process, the interchange of ideas leads to new insights and a shared understanding about how to move forward as a group.
