In this capstone session to the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) Certificate for Positive Business and Society Change, participants deepen their understanding of process and application of AI tools and methods. Drawing from their individual field project experiences and coaching conference calls since the Part I AI Workshop, participants lead interactive teaching/learning sessions on their experiences with AI, broadening their exposure to multiple applications.  Dr. Fry and Dr. Cooperrider will introduce fresh examples of how businesses and organizations use design concepts to generate better results with AI and how AI is being expanded and adapted to new contexts. Finally, they will discuss the future trajectory for AI.
