The Scribe Needs to...

Some things that the facilitating scribe needs to do...
  • Understand the process being used
  • Have a facilitator's mindset
  • Take down information in an organized fashion
  • Take down information so the room can follow it
  • Know how to capture, distill, and organize
  • Be active, effective, and visible to the group
  • Have the knowledge base and the experience base
  • Be accurate, useful, visually evocative, and meaningful
  • Have the ability to milk the information and pull out the essence
  • Not be right all of the time, but close to right most of the time
  • Have a servant's attitude to change what has been captured
  • Be able to switch places with the lead facilitator
As always, comments welcome...
