This introductory training in the pooling process offers people who work in an organization – creation, production, distribution or support services – the opportunity to become familiar with the concept of pooling. It will allow them to discover the advantages and challenges, as well as the conditions necessary for setting up the form of pooling that suits them best.

The training encourages reflection on the strengths and weaknesses of one’s organization. It’s not just about talking about needs, but also about what we offer to establish the foundations of lasting collaboration.

The workshop will allow participants to take ownership of the different aspects of the pooling process, from its planning to its mechanisms for integrating into the daily functioning of organizations, taking into account the context and the available resources.



  • Understand the key concepts and the essential aspects of a typical pooling process.
  • Identify the conditions inherent to the success of a pooling process.
  • Evaluate the relevance of adopting pooling as a possible solution to the challenges encountered.
  • Identify the type of pooling adapted to your organization or your sector of activity.
  • Identify possible pooling partners for your organization.
