You are ready to begin the journey. This page intentionally left blank Part 1 Essential Elements of Appreciative Inquiry This page intentionally left blank Part 1: Introduction 3 Part I: Essential Elements of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) Since the publication of the first edition in 2003, much has happened in the practice of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) and in the creation of new and connecting theories, as is apparent from the additional 125 resources and 40 studies/dissertations that were completed.

Part 2 of the book covers the 4-D Cycle of AI in detail. The principles that underlie AI are deeply grounded in scientific research (refer to “Positive Image, Positive Action: The Affirmative Basis of Organizing” in Chapter 11) and are highlighted in the remainder of this section in Minilectures I–IX. While the practitioner need not have a thorough understanding of these principles, it is often helpful when introducing AI to an organization to provide some of the supporting theory and research.

Paradigm 2’s basic assumption is that an organization is a mystery that should be embraced as a human center of infinite imagination, infinite capacity, and potential. The word mystery signifies, literally, a future that is unknowable and cannot be predicted. And this is true of organizations because nobody knows when or where the next creative insight will emerge that can shift everything or how a fresh combination of strengths will open to horizons never seen before. Paradigm 1 depicts organizations as broken-down machines in need of fixing; they are problems to be solved.
