Good Cop, Bad Cop...If the threat of competition, change, and outside pressure are the "Bad Cop" of organizational [educational] change, then Appreciative Inquiry is the "Good Cop"--absent but needed for this change strategy to work. Instead of merely asking "What are your problems??", Appreciative Inquiry Analysis asks "WHAT IS WORKING AROUND HERE? What we focus on gets magnified; thus the benefit of focusing on what has and is working, thereby magnifying and multiplying those strengths. The following sites continue the work on this strategy begun in the mid-seventies by David Cooperrider and his associates at Case Western Reserve University's School of Management. Consider its application to Education Reform, to Assessment by and of Teachers, and to Human Dynamics!
