Bringing value to life
The solution to roll-out DevSAT®
A facilitator is someone who engages in facilitation—any activity that makes a social process easy or easier. A facilitator often helps a group of people to understand their common objectives and assists them to plan how to achieve these objectives; in doing so, the facilitator remains "neutral", meaning he/she does not take a particular position in the discussion (Wikipedia).
A DevSAT® Facilitator is a person who has also the skills to train staff from various organizations that implement development, human aid, research or commercial activities and from organizations that plan activities to understand the principles of S&A and in using the Development Synergy and Alignment Tool (DevSAT®).
As a Licensed DevSAT® Facilitator (LDF), you help people become change agents through creating Synergy and Alignment of actions towards the goals defined by planners at different levels of scale. You help the various stakeholders, i.e. planners and implementors of humanitarian aid, development, research projects and enterprises to find ways to become more efficient, and subsequently, increase impact. You help them affect resource management and increase empowerment of collaborating implementing organizations.
When you become a LDF, you can offer and facilitate the DevSAT® Foundation Workshop for staff from various stakeholder organizations (except donors) in countries where DevSAT® is accessible and for which you have the License. You can do this with our courseware materials, including exercises, and DevSAT®. Since the software of DevSAT® is continuously being improved, participating and succeeding the refresher workshop after one year is obligatory to maintain your License for another year.
A LDF has applied to participate in the DevSAT® Facilitator Licensing Course (DFLC), and subsequently participated in the various workshops and passed an exam. The DFLC is open for staff from organizations who have participated in a DevSAT® presentation, have the commitment from their organization to become a licensed facilitator for at least two years, and excepted the DevSAT® Facilitator License Agreement.
