What does moderation entail?
A moderator, as a subject matter expert, facilitates discussions in collaboration projects. It is a mild form of conflict prevention or mediation. A moderator smoothens the edges of communication. Furthermore, entrusting control to a neutral third party serves as the foundation for a more equitable environment.
Reasons to choose moderation
You use moderation in long-term projects with many potential conflict points. For example, in situations where there is a high likelihood of conflicting interests and potential conflicts.
The advantages of being a moderator are:
- There is a constant presence at the collaboration or evaluation meetings of the involved participants. This helps prevent misunderstandings.
- a project can be effectively managed.
- The initial contact with the relevant stakeholders is neutral, which smoothes out communication.
