4D Process

How the 4D Process Works

The power of Appreciative Inquiry is unleashed through what we call a 4-D Process.

DISCOVERY: Identify and appreciate what works.

DREAM: Imagine what might be.

DESIGN: Develop systems, structures leveraging the best of what was and what might be.

DESTINY: Implement or deliver the proposed design.

This 4-D cycle – an anchor for everything from a one-on-one conversation to whole system change – leverages our best experiences and local wisdom. It stimulates creativity, and builds energy and commitment to change.
