Originally part of Berrett-Koehler Communication's "Collaborating for Change" series, this short introduction to Appreciative Inquiry is the best way for organisations to be introduced to AI by the originators and leaders of the movement itself. Now with a new introduction and updated with revisions throughout, "Appreciative Inquiry" offers an approach that works because it acknowledges the prevailing attitudes toward change. It offers a fresh view based on the possibility of a more desirable future, experience with the whole system and activities that signal "something different is happening this time." That difference systematically taps the potential of human beings to make themselves, their organisations and their communities more adaptive and more effective. This approach is based on solid, proven principles for unleashing people's creativity, knowledge and spirit toward a common purpose.

Reviews

"Appreciative Inquiry is currently revolutionizing the held of organizational development." --Robert Quinn, Distinguished Professor of Management, University of Michigan Business School "Appreciative Inquiry is the philosophy that is allowing us to engage the hearts, minds, and souls of our people--all of our people. Only when we do that, will we achieve breakthrough performance." --Cindy Frick, VP organizational Development and HR Planning Roadway Express "AI is a process that gets you moving the success spiral rather than down up the failure one. It has a motivating effect helping achieve self-fulfillment rather than getting into a doom and gloom syndrome." --Rob Treeby, Health. Safety, and Environment Manager, BP AMOCO
