Ski boot use study: The “Whats”

When it comes to doing product development work, the questions you ask, and the way you ask them, are critical to getting the information that you need.

I encourage my clients to learn about Appreciative Inquiry. It’s powerful technique for engaging whole companies in identifying innovative solutions that are both welcomed and readily implemented.

While traditional problem solving focuses on minimization or mitigation of the negative and identifying problems to be solved or avoided, Appreciative Inquiry takes a completely different approach. It looks at the positive (what we do well) and leverages those to create systems, processes and behaviors.

Appreciative Inquiry can be used at the organization, division, group, team or even the individual level.
