The purpose of this book is to provide a concise introduction to and overview of the growing discipline and practice of Appreciative Inquiry (AI). While the literature on AI is expanding rapidly with texts, handbooks, and case studies, the authors, Drs. Barrett and Fry feel there is a strong call for a "quick read" that will assist curious change agents or leaders in determining if they are interested in learning more about this rapidly expanding field of theory and practice. If you are intrigued by the prospect of mobilizing rapid, positive change with multiple stakeholders in a human system that is important to you, this book is for you.The AI approach is a way of being...as a leader, a parent, a colleague, a partner, a change agent, a team leader, a project manager, a teacher, employer or employee. It is an exciting and energizing way to approach individual, team, organization, community, and global renewal and transformation. The authors have written this book just as they talk and they share experiences from their work with AI, as if you were in their workshops, seminars or systems where they have been privileged to practice this compelling approach to change. Frank and Ron are passionate and principled about this approach to organizational development and transformation and wish for those of you who are truly curious to have this as a first source to refer to in your discovery and learning journey.
