Orientation

Where are we going with this?

"Appreciative Inquiry is about the coevolutionary search for the best in people, their organizations, and the relevant world around them. In its broadest focus, it involves systematic discovery of what gives “life” to a living system when it is most alive, most effective, and most constructively capable in economic, ecological, and human terms." (AI Commons)

The aim of this course is to provide a general introduction to AI for students of various fields requiring knowledge of organisational development.
