Abstract

Knowledge of business processes are by nature fragmented or dispersed within the actors and activities of the process. The key question becomes then, how to reclaim the multi-level perspectives of various stakeholders during a group workshop in order to develop the process as a whole. In other words, the overall problem on the group level is how to create a group situation that enables discussing the practices of individual stakeholders, and leading to collaborative construction of knowledge. My research approaches this question from the facilitators' viewpoint. The facilitator is in this case a researcher-facilitator, who guides development workshops. From this perspective it is central to understand the facilitator's influence in bringing out the multi-level perspectives of collaboration to form a coherent basis for development.
