Appreciative inquiry (AI) is a model that seeks to engage stakeholders in self-determined change. According to Bushe "AI revolutionized the field of organization development and was a precursor to the rise of positive organization studies and the strengths based movement in American management.

Appreciative Inquiry has the ability to change the whole organization by changing the people. Through positive questioning people will be directed to move in a positive direction. Recognizing the strengths and values of what works as opposed to what's wrong will transform the individuals and thus transform the organization. Appreciative Inquiry is a shift from looking at problems and deficiencies and instead focusing on strengths and successes. Appreciative Inquiry is a tool for organizational change and it will strengthen relationships.

Appreciative Inquiry: Research for Change is the first book to explore in depth the issues that arise when appreciative inquiry is used as a research framework, rather than an organizational development tool. Author Jan Reed draws upon her own experience of using Appreciative Inquiry (AI) as a research approach―shaping the asking of questions, the gathering of information, and the communication of ideas.
