What is Appreciative Inquiry?*
It is a revolutionary approach to strategic change and sustainable growth in organisations. To be effective, change requires speed, clear implementation and agreement at all levels. AI achieves this by involving all the different groups of stakeholders in the decision-making process, in a collaborative way.
It is a process of Inquiry that challenges the whole system to maximise the positive potential for cultural change, strategic planning, development of leadership, alliances, team-building, community development and comprehensive change of the system.
AI offers new theoretical and practical rules for change. AI is a methodology for managing change. It can be applied to any process of change in an organisation or model, including strategic planning, (team building), coaching, community building, and even for personal reflexion and development.
AI provides a method of leadership that enables innovation to emerge from the system itself.
