- The lead facilitator can focus on the people in the room and managing the discussion without worrying about what is being captured.
- The second facilitator provides a second set of eyes and ears to support the lead facilitator.
- All ideas are captured and saved for use in the future, so no one's ideas get "lost."
- When done electronically and posted with a projector on the wall, the ideas evolve with the discussion and the meeting ends with a report already written.
This is just the beginning of my thoughts and I am hoping others will join in with their thoughts about the role of a "scribe" in facilitating meetings. (I would even like to come up with another name for the role...)
