Appreciative Inquiry as a Method for Evaluation: An Interview with Hallie Preskill
Christie, Christina A.
American Journal of Evaluation, v27 n4 p466-474 2006
This interview with Dr. Hallie Preskill focuses on the organizational change method known as appreciative inquiry (AI), which is described as a process that builds on past successes (and peak experiences) in an effort to design and implement future actions. Preskill takes the philosophy and principles put forth by organizational change AI theorists and applies them to the evaluation context. Preskill also describes the part played by AI in the Corporate Education Development and Training (CEDT) facility's evaluation project (Albuquerque, New Mexico).
