4.0 out of 5 stars Appreciative Inquiry Collaboration for Change, 4 Jun 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Appreciative Inquiry (Collaborating for Change) (Paperback)
The book gives an outline to Appreciative Inquiry (AI). Sections are: How did 'GYE' do it? What is Appreciative Inquiry? Getting Started, Roles Responsibilities and Relationships. Appreciative Inquiry and Power in Organisations, Condiditons for Success, Theoretical Basis, Sustaining the Results, Conclusions.
AI is an enticing, generative approach to change. Rooted in Social Constructivism AI seeks to build on what works. This contasts with traditional problem solving approaches that focus on deficits or what doesn't work. The book illustrates AI's approach using the 4'D' cycle of 'Discovery' (What works) 'Dream' (The essence of what works) 'Design' (The infrastructure needed to deliver) and 'Destiny'
(The responsibility / roles needed to make change happen.
The book offers a concise introduction to those wishing to learn about AI. Further reffs are included in the notes at the end of the book.
