Explaination of Appreciative Inquiry

 Social Constructionism argues that the language and metaphors we use don't just describe reality (the world), they actually create 'our' reality (the world). This is the reason great care is taken with the choice of language - as it will influence the kind of future we create. The way we know (think/feel) influences our attitude and response. This principle suggests that we construct (make) meaning rather than extract it. Just as different people will read the same book or article as others and come up with a different meaning so we can "read" an organisation differently. And just as we can come to a ...
Participatory Action Research and its kinds emphasize on the collective modification of the external world. The Praxis Intervention, on the other hand emphasizes working on the Praxis potential ( phronesis ) of its participants. "Praxis Potential" means the 'members' potential to reflexively work on their respective 'mentalities'; by 'participant' it is not just meant the clientele beneficiaries of the praxis intervention project alone, but also the organizers and experts participating in such a project. The praxis intervention aims at leading its members through a "participant ...

Eboo Patel: 'Everybody Draw Muhammad Day': The New Campus Culture Wars
I was an undergraduate in the mid-1990s, the heyday of identity politics. We read copious amounts of Cornel West and bell hooks, demanded multicultural centers and gender studies departments, applauded Ellen's coming out, and protested demeaning mascots like Chief Illiniwek. "Race-class-gender-ethnicity-sexuality" was repeated so often that it almost became a single word. No doubt parts of the identity politics movement went off the cliff (down with Western Civ!). And there was pushback, of course (only the West has civilization!). But over all, university administrations recognized an important opportunity and ... market research, surveys and trends


Positive Image, Positive Action
Modern management thought was born proclaiming that organizations are the triumph of the human imagination. As made and imaged, organizations are products of human imagination. As made and imagined, organizations are products of human interaction and mind rather than some blind expression of an underlying natural order (McGregor, 1960; Berger and Luckmann, 1967; Pfeffer, 1981; Gergen, 1982; Srivastva and Associates, 1983; Schein, 1985; Unger, 1987).
