Book Description

Aug. 15 2011
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is one of the most exciting and increasingly recognized concepts being used to facilitate organizational change. This book studies AI in depth, illustrating the method of asking particular questions and encouraging staff to consider both the positive and negative systems in place and to recognize the need to implement change. It demonstrates how AI can be applied by combining the skills, perspectives and approaches presented here into a practical conversational approach to organizational challenges. Case studies from organizations that have already integrated conversational methods into their change management practice show why the processes are valuable, why they are effective, and how to generate such conversations. Written in jargon-free language, Appreciative Inquiry for Change Management is an excellent resource for discovering the benefits that conversational techniques can have on an organization and its performance.

Praise for the previous edition: 

"This book will change the way we talk, relate, and think about change.

It is a remarkable how to book that perfectly blends theory, practice and life-empowering perspectives. A must read for anyone interested in leading with hope and optimism, and creating the future through the collaborative engagement of our highest human strengths."

Most of the way through the book and I have to say, it has:

- a great introduction to a well-documented field
- solid analysis of current-state information
- realistic predictions of future-state concepts

Worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful Introduction April 6 2009
By Shubham Basu - Published on
A very insightful introduction, to the point carrying you through the concept of AI, World Cafe and Open Space Technology. I must also say that if somebody is new to the concept, the book can serve as the ideal insight. Though further reading might be required to delve further into details, but I certainly ended up highlighting a lot of things for future reference.
Hopefully the author will bring in the next one soon enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcomed addition to evaluation Feb. 15 2009
By SpiritJourney - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
AI does not take the place of traditional program evaluation - but instead, it is a tool to use with traditional program evaluation. I highly recommend this method because I have seen very good results by using it in my company. Just do not skip any steps in the process.
