Appreciative Inquiry


Organizations seeking to make a major change in HOW they work may consider using Appreciative Inquiry (AI) to help evaluate viewpoints and create an evolutionary path to the future. AI leverages brainstorming, prioritizing, sub-teams, and various other tools we’ve discussed, putting them in the context of “study and exploration of what gives life to human systems when they function at their best.” (see Whitney, The Power of Appreciative Inquiry)


Annotated agendas are intended for use by the facilitator and can extend up to twenty pages and larger.  They provide a play script of the context that needs to managed, typically in a partial day, full day, or multiple day workshop environment.  They stipulate in great detail the Purpose of each agenda step, the Questions to be addressed during each step, and the need place for multi-media support including movie files, PowerPoint slides, and large Post-It notes.  Each agenda step provides an estimated timeframe, summary statements, and additional notes.  MOST IMPORTANTLY each agenda step comes with a highly detailed method—HOW TO facilitate the deliverable with an emphasis on the analysis tool and HOW TO take lists and converge them into documents and consensually agreed upon findings, outputs, and actions.
