In the previous essay (XI) I introduced a key concept in the creation of an appreciative, closely held enterprise: appreciation requires that one dwells in and frequently return to three domains: information, intentions and ideas. Six strategies are engaged which enables one to move successfully through these three domains. I have identified the sequencing of these six strategies as the Enterprise Cycle. Furthermore, I framed these six strategies in a graphic I call the Appreciative Triangle.
Assisting in the retention of these six strategies, I have assigned them names that begin with the first six letters in our alphabet: (1) assessment, (2) benchmarking, (3) chartering, (4) development, (5) empowerment and (6) feedback. Each of the strategies relates specifically to one or two of the three domains:
Assessment: Domain of Information
Benchmarking: Domains of Information and Intentions
Chartering: Domain of Intentions
Development: Domains of Intentions and Ideas
Empowerment: Domain of Ideas
Feedback: Domains of Ideas and Information
