|Announcing the NOVEMBER 2008 AI Practitioner
In 1987 David Cooperrider and Suresh Srivastva published Appreciative Inquiry in Organizational Life, the first time the term Appreciative Inquiry appeared in a professional publication. Now, the guest editors focus on the question, ‘What’s next?’: what is the new frontier of Appreciative Inquiry?
‘Our hope for this issue is that stories and cases of emergent strength-based organizations will invigorate and further refine the definitions and propositions presented here. As more and more practitioners join the conversation, we anticipate the threads coming together in unexpected and wonderful ways. We are confident they will challenge our thinking and offer exciting new answers to the question ‘what might be?’
There is a Foreword by David Cooperrider on 3-Circles of the Strengths Revolution: Elevation of Strengths, Alignment and Magnification of Strengths, and Refraction of Strengths Outward Into Society.
The stories are first hand reports from New Zealand, Canada and the United States of organizations in manufacturing, healthcare, education, community service and the media as (or their journey towards) strength-based organizations.
The articles set out principles as well as specific examples of systems, structures and processes that build on the strengths of everyone in an organization.
