This review is from: Memories, Hopes, and Conversations: Appreciative Inquiry and Congregational Change (Paperback)
I think this work was well written and interesting. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is an alternative to problem-based planning. It makes sense for a church to pay attention to its strength(s) and move forward along that dimension. I think AI also makes sense because it is a more optimistic planning method, aligned with Christian hope.
I thought Branson was detailed enough in his explanation to cover areas of possible confusion. Our Long Range Planning Team is modeling our next 5-year plan after Branson's model -- it makes sense.
