    Drawing on the work of David Cooperrider and other pioneers in the area of appreciative inquiry (AI) to bridge the gap between consulting activity and academic research in AI, the author also reflects upon her experience of using AI as a research approach, shaping the asking of questions, gathering of information, and the communication of ideas.

    Pioneers in the area of appreciative inquiry (AI) have focused on it as an organisational development tool, but this book explores AI as a research framework. The author reflects on her experience of using AI as a research approach, and draws on writing in organisational development and research methodology to discuss the ways AI can shape the asking of questions, the gathering of information, and the communication of findings and ideas. Key features: - A comprehensive introduction to AI and the range of debates that it generates for research. - International; examples from recently published and unpublished research projects in which AI was used, with an emphasis on those that shaped policy, planning, and future practice. - Discusses how connections can be made between AI and various research paradigms and approaches to research. - Offers individual and group exercises that explore and illustrate ways in which AI research can be done.
