Weiss Consulting's Appreciative Inquiry Reading

Lonnie Weiss has made a number of presentations and published articles featuring Weiss Consulting's work using Appreciative Inquiry.

Weiss Consulting used Appreciative Inquiry to create the structure and tone of a strategic planning process for a major state-wide organization, the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.  This article appeared in the Fall/Winter 2006 issue of their publication the PCAR Pinnacle, also available at www.pcar.org

Lonnie Weiss has told the story of the New Jersey Department of Human Resources' large scale initiative to introduce Appreciative Inquiry many times.  This Power Point presentation accompanied the story she told colleagues at the January 2006 gathering of Appreciative Inquiry Consulting. 

Even before the launch of the DHS initiative, we found ways to "use whatever emerged" and seeded an appreciative approach.  This article appeared in the May 2006 issue of the professional journal AI Practitioner.   Additional material is available at www.aipractitioner.com.
