Appreciative Inquiry and the New Change Equation

Appreciative Inquiry, a concept developed by David Cooperrider, brings structure and positivity to a world where 80% of all change efforts fail. It is being hailed as a breakthrough by organisations as diverse as Apple and National Grid, Siemens, IBM and Novartis – revolutionising the field of organisation development and change management.

Download a copy of the slides from CRF's event - "Appreciative Inquiry and the New Change Equation" to learn about the following:

• how to bring out the best in human systems, rallying people in change-resistant environments to realise new and better futures
• how to recognise the core abilities and skills to mobilise decisive change and create individual and organisational success
• why people resist change
• the ‘4-D’ cycle of discovery, dream, design and destiny
• Appreciative Inquiry tools which can be applied immediately at all levels of an ever changing organisation.

Appreciative Inquiry Summit - Workbook Example

Why do most change project fail? Often it is due to smaller committees within the organisation rolling out the change initiative through a wider organisation. However, this approach creates silos and leads to a greater resistance from a wider group. Appreciative Inquiry Summit is an alternative approach to enabling change that involves the whole organisation in the process.
