Facilitation, in a business context, is “the process of helping groups, or individuals, to learn, find a solution, or reach a consensus, without imposing or dictating an outcome. Facilitation works to empower individuals or groups to learn for themselves or find their own answers to problems without control or manipulation. Facilitators need good process and communication skills, including listening, questioning, and reflecting. Facilitation is used in a variety of contexts including training, experiential learning, conflict resolution, and negotiation.” – The BNet Dictionary

A facilitator is an individual whose role is to help to manage a process of information exchange. While an expert's" role is to offer advice, the facilitator's role is to help with how the discussion is proceeding.  In short, the facilitator's responsibility is to address the journey, rather than the destination.
