RAISING CRITICAL ISSUES ABOUT AI
Paper - Five Theories of Change Embedded in Appreciative
Inquiry by Gervase R. Bushe Ph.D. (phttp://www.gervasebushe.ca/appinq.htm). (1) I have already come across a consulting firm that asked
people to rate how good the organization was on a number of items on a
5 point scale and called this appreciative inquiry. (2) A second concern
is that some practitioners, especially graduate students, can develop a
zealous attention to "appreciation" without any theoretical rhyme or reason
to their practice.
