Announcing the AUGUST 2008 AI Practitioner
The Sustainability Journey and Appreciative Inquiry:
How a Whole-System, Positive Change Approach can Accelerate the Adoption and Integration of a New Business Paradigm
Guest editors: Mona Amodeo, C Keith Cox, Daniel K Saint and Jacqueline M Stavros
What is sustainability? Is it a process, a concept, a strategy? All of these combined? The United Nations Brundtland Report broadly defined sustainability as ensuring that humanity meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The Guest editors say, 'From our perspective, sustainability derives it greatest power and potential in organizations when it is embraced as a set of core values that uplift and integrate economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility, sometimes referred to as people, profit and planet - the triple bottom line.'
The Guest editors together with their clients describe key successes in combining the benefits of focusing on the triple bottom line. Examples in this AIP issue include:
