Establishing an Enterprise Facilitation Service



The Sirolli Institute has undertaken an exciting new initiative to enhance Enterprise Facilitation training; an alliance with Intelligent Netware has transformed our community training program into a multi-media package.  This allows communities to be competently trained at a fraction of the cost.

Prior to engaging in Sirolli training a competent, passionate champion must be identified, becoming the interface between the Sirolli Institute and the community.

Online Training Scope of Work

A.  Enterprise Facilitator Recruitment
The Institute will provide job descriptions, duties statement, facsimile advertisements, and interview questions to facilitate the recruitment of the Enterprise Facilitator. Interviews with practicing Enterprise Facilitators are available on-line.   

B.  Enterprise Facilitator Training
The Sirolli Institute will train the Enterprise Facilitator by providing on-line, intensive, theoretical training along with 80 hours of field training with a Master Enterprise Facilitator.  A residential 5-day training course in the community for the Enterprise Facilitator and up to 11 community volunteers is available for an additional fee.

C.  Resource Board Recruitment and Training
A series of comprehensive online modules serve to train the volunteer Resource Board on their roles and responsibilities, community outreach and leveraging goodwill,  and providing appropriate input at monthly meetings.

D. Remote Mentoring
The champion, community Resource Board members and Enterprise Facilitator have access to the Sirolli Institute just in time and as needed concluding 12 months after contract signing. 

E.  Assessment

At approximately 6 months of operations, the Sirolli Institute will conduct a joint project assessment and review to determine if the project is demonstrating compliance with the model.  This is often conducted by the Institute observing an active board meeting by video link.

F.  Membership in Enterprise Facilitation Worldwide Network
Adherence to the principles and practices of Enterprise Facilitation® results in access to the Enterprise Facilitation Worldwide Network:

  • limited use of Sirolli Institute trademarks and copyright materials in their promotional, advertising and fund raising campaigns

From Yvonne Fizer

Yvonne Fizer, Business Development Director for the Sirolli Institute, calls the experience; 

Play_YvonneFizer_INSI"…a remarkable transformation with amazing outcomes. Our new distance learning capacity combines a network of new services that are delivered just in time and as needed. This creates an affordable economic development model for communities. Enterprise Facilitation is a logical tool to aid in the economic recovery so needed in our communities.”

Increased Value

Becoming carbon conscious and more efficient usually means a reduction in service or quality. We are a surprising exception!

Participants can learn exactly what they need, when they are available in a location of their choice.  Using the Internet, DVDs, VOIP and desktop videoconferencing, the lessons are easily accessed and reviewed when needed.  Participants can learn a little at a time or a lot. It’s completely up to them.


Our distance learning tools have increased the value of our training.  Research indicates that distance learning can be more effective than traditional methods.  Its multi-sensory features appeals to a broader cross-section of learning styles. Online learning increases interactions with participants; shy students often open up via email and web 2.0 tools.  Through this increased interaction we can better meet individuals needs.


And we have been able to pass our time and cost savings on to you.

On this page you will find a number of training samples. You will see that our guidance is rich and informative, plus we are bringing you decades of positive outcomes and best practices. Our video library is growing impressively with interviews and case studies from around the world, and, should there be the need for an 'instant' response, our 'live support' desk is always available to clients.
