Annotation: The purpose of this writing is to invite you into the experiment with us. To spark ideas that will help you bring the principles and practices of “whole system positive change” to your organizations and communities. In this paper we provide a framework for understanding the Appreciative Inquiry Summit as a methodology for positive change. We outline a typical AI Summit; and we share success factors - what we have learned in this early work with AI and large group processes that contributes to success in large-scale efforts.
