They have the time capacity and financial resources to design and facilitate a workshop and can provide ongoing support or coaching following a workshop as part of a larger KS strategy. S/he:

  • is acquainted with the KS tools and methods - possibly having participated in a KS Methods and Tools workshop themselves and/or gained substantial experience in introducing KS methods and tools in the workplace
  • is comfortable facilitating groups of up to 25 people

  • is comfortable identifying relevant and appropriate KS entry points for their context and related methods and tools
