About the course
These principles are at the core of Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a revolutionary approach to strategic change and sustainable growth for organizations. To be effective, change requires speed, flawless execution and buy-in at all levels. AI accomplishes this by engaging all stakeholder groups in a collaborative approach to decision making. It is a process of inquiry which challenges the whole system to maximize the positive potential for cultural change, strategic planning, leadership development, joint ventures and alliances, team building, community development and dramatic whole system change.
