The September issue of our International Appreciative Inquiry Journal is out. The topic of this AI Practitioner Journal is: Developing Appreciative Teams. Our guest editors Ignacio Pavez and Federico Varona have brought together a great team of authors who share their perspectives and stories about creating thriving teams.
The aim of this issue is to share with the readers of AI Practitioner five experiences of appreciative team development interventions carried out by Latin American practitioner/authors. "We know that what might be effective – and efficient – for practising Appreciative Inquiry (AI) in one culture may not work well in another, but what has proven to function in one culture may also be effective in another. This is the importance of this issue, as it presents new ways of implementing the appreciative approach in contexts that have rarely been explored in the literature, generating new knowledge that is enriched by the Latin-American cultural perspective. This is a significant step towards strengthening the theory and practice of the appreciative approach and its development in our region."
This is a bilingual issue in which all theme-related articles are both available in Spanish and in English.
