Kaner, S. (2014). Facilitator’s Guide to Participatory Decision-Making. John Wiley & Sons.
This is exactly what it says, a guidebook to successful facilitation. It details a variety of situations that can occur within participatory decision making, how this process should ideally go, and how to solve problems that arise in the real world application of facilitating participatory decision making. This book contains many graphics and charts to illustrate facilitation. It gives many examples of each step of facilitating participatory decision making as well as the necessary skills to achieve consensus. It covers everything from setting up the layout of the meeting, how to write the ideas presented down, and how to guide diverse participants into agreement. It focuses on the wide range of problems a facilitator can encounter during this process and gives a number of ways to best address them.
