This offering is based on whole system approach. We engage all the stakeholders of the institution or university for conversations based on possibilities and not on the constraints. This program has two components:
1. Appreciative Inquiry
2. Structured Inputs from Experts
Institution Building Program
 
 
   
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is based on the tenet that institution building is not the bundle of problems to be solved but a miracle to be embraced and cherished. AI by its very nature is application oriented, collaborative and provocative method of organization development.

1. DISCOVER The identification of institutional gifts, talents and processes that work well.
     
2. DREAM The envisioning of how the institution of our shared dream will function.

The most common session are on coaching and mentoring students, instruction design for the courses, balancing academic and administrative responsibilities, managing self and team, using technology for education etc.
     
4. DESIGN Collaboratively identifying the systems and processes which will help to realize the dream
     
5. DESTINY  (or DELIVER): The implementation (execution) of the proposed design Institution Building Program can be useful for the institutions and universities operating at different stage of their life cycle.
