Acknowledgements
 As will quickly become apparent, this book depends on the cooperation of many,many people. At the risk of failing to acknowledge some, I would like to say abig thank you to the following:to Neil Ford at the IISD for making this volume available to a widerpublicto David Cooperrider and his colleagues at Case Western University forpioneering appreciative inquiry and sharing their findings so generously to my colleagues in the Cambridge Partnership for OrganisationalTransformation who have taught me so much, and especially to Mette Jacobsgaard with whom I shared much of the fieldwork reported in thisvolumeto my colleagues in Trinity Hall, Cambridge for granting me leave of absence to do much of the fieldwork to Virginia Greany who helped read proofs against a tight deadline atconsiderable personal inconvenienceto all those people and organizations that have undertaken an apprecia-tive inquiry and shared the process and outcomes with me. Withoutthem, this book could never have been written. Joe Petrik edited the original manuscript and coordinated the layout and printproduction. Shannon Brown, Lael Dyck, Virginia Gonzales and Alison Patmoreentered the edits to the manuscript. Don Berg designed the volume’s cover andtypeset the manuscript.Charles Elliott,Trinity Hall,Cambridge.17th March, 1999.
