Thank you to everyone who joined my session Reviewing the past to prepare for the future on Friday, at the IAF Europe conference in Copenhagen Facilitation Reloaded. Here I am sharing links to the resources and case studies that I mentioned during the session – both on our topic, which was the history of facilitation, and on the process we used, which was the ICA ‘ToP’ Historical Scan method.
For more on the history of facilitation, and the events and links shared online and at various IAF conferences this year, cick to enlarge the photos here of our own session and of the IAF travelling timeline, and see also:
- How has facilitation developed over time, and where might it be heading?
- #FacHistory on twitter and (also below) on storify
- Reflections on the history of professional process facilitation, an article by Richard Chapman published by IAF Europe & AMED in 2011
- the history of IAF.
On ICA’s ToP Historical Scan method, see:
- ICA’s Technology of Participation (ToP)
- IAF Europe’s 2007 ‘Method of the Month’ ToP Historical Scan method

- ICA:UK books and sticky walls.
For case studies of real-life applications of the method in different contexts, see:
