Appreciative Inquiry Commons

The AI Commons is a worldwide portal devoted to the fullest sharing of academic resources and practical tools on Appreciative Inquiry and the rapidly growing discipline of positive change. This site is a resource for leaders of change, scholars, students, and business managers–and it is hosted by Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management. http://appreciativeinquiry.case.edu

In the years since the original theory and vision for “Appreciative Inquiry Into Organizational Life” was articulated by two professors at the Weatherhead School of Management (see David Cooperrider and Suresh Srivastva, 1987) there have been literally hundreds of people involved in co-creating new concepts and practices for doing AI, and for bringing the spirit and methodology of AI into organizations all over the world.

Commenting on her assessment of AI’s uniqueness, a senior executive at one company recently said: “I know what AI is about…it is about creating a positive revolution in change.” And in words that echo the same thing, University of Michigan Professor Robert Quinn, in his acclaimed book Change the World writes: “Appreciative Inquiry is currently revolutionizing the field of organizational development.”
