FAST facilitation training provides intensive professional leadership training that amplifies the principles, skills, tools, and confidence to successfully lead groups and teams toward consensual understanding, decisions, and action.

Alumnae can: - Demonstrate competence with structured approaches - Exhibit confidence with facilitation skills and decision-making tools - Apply FAST across planning, analysis, and design environments - Know HOW TO integrate FAST with project management, requirements-gathering, business process improvement, problem-solving, brainstorming, peer-assist, root-cause analysis, look backs, retrospectives, and others.
