The Bridgit Africa (Pty) Ltd facilitation process is based on three “Core Values”:
• Free and informed choice
• Internal commitment to the choice
Over years of experience, we have learnt that throughout the entire project life cycle, effective team collaboration managed by neutral and impartial facilitators is crucial to any project's success.
In this regard, we developed the notion of ZOUD – Zone of Uncomfortable Debate.
This is in recognition of the fact that core project teams are adept at voicing their commitment to agreed strategies during a workshop, but will leave with no intention of carrying them out.
Within the Zone of Uncomfortable Debate, difficult issues are usually entered by accident, and the desired response is to bring all the difficult issues to the surface, and keep them there until they are resolved, and to back to a Comfortable Zone as soon as possible.
Bridgit Africa (Pty) Ltd will conduct workshops on the basis of a once-off facilitation, usually to bring a project back on track or to improve team relationships. A more preferable scenario, however, is permanent engagement throughout the entire project cycle where the aim of workshop is continuous improvement.
Bridgit Africa (Pty) Ltd offers the following Facilitation Workshops
• Portfolio & Program Optimization
• Program & Project Prioritization
• Project Start Ups
• Program & Project Scoping
• Major Scope Changes
• Project Execution Planning
• Organisational Risk Assessments
• Project Risk Assessments
• Crisis Management
• Design Thinking
Kevin is an avid mountaineer and sky diver; these sporting achievements are brought into the facilitation and add that extra a flavour to the outcomes of the workshops.
