MG RUSH has been providing facilitation training since the mid-1980s. Based on extensive research of effective facilitation techniques and many, many hours of applied facilitation, their unique process was created to fill gaps left by other techniques, to formalize their discoveries and innovations, and to enable others to make facilitated workshops useful in all team/workgroup activities. They created CHOICE as the evolutionary step of effective facilitation. CHOICE incorporates several years of intensive field testing of new techniques that reflect the modern organization: distributed, electronic, and multi-cultural, with a heavy emphasis on quality and project management excellence.
MG RUSH has seeded advanced facilitation techniques at hundreds of companies, including some of the largest, most recognizable in the world. MG RUSH is an acknowledged leader in the trend to use facilitated workshops for information gathering, planning, decision-making, and team leadership.
