The 4d model of Appreciative Inquiry (AI)

Discovery: participants reflect and discuss the best of what is concerning the object of inquiry

Dream: participants are aksed to imagine their group, organization, community at its best, an attempt is made to identify the common aspirations of system members

Design: with a common dream in place participants are asked to develop concrete proposals

Delivery/Destiny: using the outcomes of design the participants are asked  to create new targets, fill in gaps
