I will wrap up the discussion of appreciative inquiry by highlighting the 5D Model, the framework used to structure an AI organizational development initiative. The 5 stages are:
Define – describing the intent and scope of the initiative
Discovery – uncovering and appreciating the best of what is
Dream – envisioning what could be
Design – co-constructing what should be
Destiny – delivering and sustaining the dream
We actually use this model to organize and frame our work with clients. It has stood the test of time!
