- Adapted from the [[http://​appreciativeinquiry.case.edu/​intro/​whatisai.cfm|Appreciative Inquiry Commons]]:​\\ ​ "​Appreciative Inquiry is about the search for the best in people, their organizations,​ and the relevant world around them. In its broadest focus, it involves systematic discovery of what gives “life” to a living system when it is most alive, most effective, and most constructively capable in economic, ecological, and human terms. AI involves, in a central way, the art and practice of asking questions that strengthen a system’s capacity to apprehend, anticipate, and heighten positive potential. It centrally involves the mobilization of inquiry through the crafting of the “unconditional positive question” often-involving hundreds or sometimes thousands of people. In AI the arduous task of intervention gives way to the speed of imagination and innovation; instead of negation, criticism, and spiraling diagnosis, there is discovery, dream, and design. AI seeks, fundamentally,​ to build a constructive union between a whole people and the massive entirety of what people talk about as past and present capacities: achievements,​ assets, unexplored potentials, innovations,​ strengths, elevated thoughts, opportunities,​ benchmarks, high point moments, lived values, traditions, strategic competencies,​ stories, expressions of wisdom, insights into the deeper corporate spirit or soul-- and visions of valued and possible futures. ​... AI deliberately,​ in everything it does, seeks to work from accounts of this “positive change core”—and it assumes that every living system has many untapped and rich and inspiring accounts of the positive. Link the energy of this core directly to any change agenda and changes never thought possible are suddenly and democratically mobilized."​\\ \\ +
