Implementing Appreciative Inquiry in a Pragmatic Way
Who can give some advice or tips on a pragmatic "how to" implement AI..?

Implementing Appreciative Inquiry
Ronny Decuyper, Belgium, Member
In my humble opinion, you can not "just implement" AI. It takes a while to change the culture of an organization. But applied on a large scale it can dramaticly change your organisation as you probably already know.
Unfortunately this forum is a little too small to give you pragmatic advice, but I have experienced that one just has to start with a session like in the workbook of David Cooperrider. So try to find an opportunity to start with a group of 20 persons and just follow the scenario of the masters book. It'll work! Trust me!
And if i'm in Egypt one day, then I'll be glad to facilitate a session in your company for free!
With appreciative regards, Ronny

Basics of Implementing AI
Madhu Kumar Thapa, Manager, Nepal, Member
The philosophy of AI sounds very exciting and appealing. Can somebody share some examples of how Appreciative Inquiry can be implemented, especially by beginners? Some helpful questions to begin with?

How to Implement Appreciative Inquiry
Robert Miller, Manager, United States, Member
I have to agree with Ronny, I don't think it's something you implement like a tool, rather look at it as a philosophy or a state of perception.
Visualize the change and speak it into existence through positive thought and will.

Starting Points to Appreciative Inquiry Implementation
JC de Jong, Director, Netherlands, SIG Leader
First of all I agree with the earlier comments. And I would like to suggest to look for / establish a spirit of curiousity, real interest in what others might bring to the table.
A good starting point is to ask people for their best stories around a theme. Example: "please tell me your best, personal, story around how you implemented something new in your organisation". And then just listen to what people tell you.
I would also suggest you try and contact some fellow country man. The last world wide AI conference was in Nepal and there is quite a movement in Nepal using AI. If you need some names, let me know.
