"Designers end up facilitating a lot over the course of a professional life. The most common context is when you need to present and collect feedback on research you have conducted, a conceptual design you have created, or the final design that wraps up your project. These review sessions require you to facilitate a group of people through not only a series of findings or design but also the rationale for your end recommendation.
Having a good grounding in what it takes to be a facilitator will help these review sessions become more productive and gain you enriched feedback that will help you further mature your creations."
