Appreciative Inquiry in Asia
Editor: Noel E.K.Tan
Asia is a fascinating continent undergoing dramatic transformation. Two of the BRIC economies, China and India are located in Asia. Hot on the heels of the famous Tiger economies of Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea; are the emerging markets of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam. Yet, the diversity of peoples, cultures and historical experiences unify to provide a unique context to different approaches to societal and organizational transformation and change.
This issue creates the possibility of generating answers to questions like:
- What are the experiences of Asian practitioners of Appreciative Inquiry and other positive change methods?
- How does being in East Asia shape the way AI is perceived, harnessed and deployed?
- What lessons do these experiences offer in terms of shaping the development of positive societies, organizations and the awareness of appreciative practices?
Practitioners from different parts of Asia come together with their best stories and reflections.
