dc.description.abstract PCF5 Sub-theme: Cross-cutting Themes // In situations of social conflict and organisational change, institutions frequently undertake planning initiatives to address the challenges they face. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a valuable tool for initiating positive change and encouraging implementation of the results. // Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is one of the best kept secret in strategic planning. The system was developed by David Cooperrider and Suresh Srivastva at CASE Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management in1987. Since that time, it has become a major revolutionary tool in planning institutional change in education, the private sector and NGOs. Through its positive approaches to planning, participants involved in AI workshops collaborate in identifying planning solutions that are practical and engaging in a positive and constructive way. // This workshop will demonstrate the AI methodology. In the latter part of the workshop, participants will be able to explore opportunities for using the AI methodology to generate “buy-in” and active commitment to strategies necessary to implement ODL successfully in an institutional environment. Since this planning strategy is participatory, those choosing to participate in it at the conference will be required to do some preliminary preparation. // Paper ID 459
