The Facilitator's Catechism Playbook

Daniel Ari Friedman; Richard J. Cordes

The Facilitator’s Catechism (FC) is an operations order formatted as a project-management document. The FC is intended to be used & refined by remote teams in order to greatly increase organizational alignment, project comparability, reliability, and productivity in the pursuit of timely deliverables while reducing work-about-work. It is built from the battle-tested, project management techniques used by the National Militaries and by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. This playbook is meant to be a document that assists with that adoption, ensuring clarity and providing a Single Source of Truth (SSoT) for the intents of its application and its usage. It offers context on the background of catechisms (Part I), a step-by-step guide on how to deploy it for the first time (Part II), and examples, templates, further reading, and resources for making it a part of your regular individual or team work-flow (Supplemental Resources).
