The impetus for this book came from an appreciation that reflexivity, for both consultant and client, is the core ingredient for facilitating the "changing organization." Central to this belief, Reflexive Inquiry (RI) draws on the spirit of five overlapping theoretical traditions--systemic, social constructionist, critical, appreciative, and complexity. These principles each offer a contribution to the management of reflexive consciousness and are used to shape consultancy practice. Tools expressing these approaches and embodying and facilitating reflexivity are honed and sharpened with illustrations from specific organizational cases. RI is offered as a counterpoint to Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a prevalent consultancy methodology discourse for working with organizational change.

In Part One of the book, the frame of RI is set out. In Part Two, its principles and tools are brought to life in organizational and community development contexts. Part Three draws out some implications of the principles, arguments, models, and tools presented for undertaking research, while Part Four concludes and takes a look at the potential for future development.

About the Author:

Christine Oliver

Review:

"Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this book is that it both extends the work of the community of practice in which it is located and is accessible to those not already involved in it. Readers new to this community of practice will find a high ratio of new information and ideas, but the information is presented in an engaging manner with sufficient illustrations from actual cases to enable comprehension and adoption of new ways of working." (W. Barnett Pearce Ph.D., Professor, Human and Organization Development Program, Fielding Graduate Institute, and member of the Public Dialogue Consortium and Pearce Associates)
