Innovations in Business Through a Positive Lens: Concepts and Practices in Appreciative Inquiry

Applying David Cooperrider's framework of Appreciative Inquiry (AI), this intensive two-day seminar will explore generative approaches to increasing business capacity, fostering creativity and strategically positioning the work of the corporation. AI builds a constructive union between stakeholders and the organization based on inquiry into past and present capacities: achievements, assets, strengths, elevated thoughts, opportunities, high point moments, core values, traditions, strategic competencies, insights into the deeper corporate spirit, and visions of valued and possible futures. This "discovery" is then translated into descriptions of a desired future for the organization and its stakeholders - which in turn serves as the basis for the development of the innovations which will most rapidly move the organization in the direction it seeks to attain. This introductory course will focus on the five phases of the appreciative process: definition of the strategic need, discovery of the organization's positive core, dreaming of the environment in which excellence will be fostered in the future, design of the structures, processes and procedures that embody the principles and strategic outcomes, and delivery of the initiatives that will move the business forward to its new vision. It will highlight examples from the manufacturing, services, consumer goods and healthcare industries. Attention will be given to factors essential for effective use of AI and preparing for implementation.
