The search conference : a powerful method for planning organizational change and community action by Merrelyn Emery( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 324 libraries worldwide
The Search Conference is not just another management tool, but a participative approach to planned change that engages the collective learning and creativity of large groups, inspiring people to find common ground around new strategies, future directions, and joint actions. The process combines the best practices associated with strategic planning, systems thinking, and effective group communications - enabling participants to take part fully, rise above self-interest, and make decisions for the common good. Written by Search Conference pioneer Merrelyn Emery and Ronald Purser, this book uses a wealth of illustrative examples from a wide variety of nonprofit, business, and public organizations that attest to the versatility of this important organization development intervention

Searching : the theory and practice of making cultural change by Merrelyn Emery( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
"Searching explains how to make the fundamental cultural change required for a desirable sustainable future. It describes the 'two-stage model' of open systems social science in action and covers two major methods: the Search Conference for strategic planning and community development; and the Participative Design Workshop for the genotypical design and redesign of organizational structures. The result of nearly 50 years of integrated conceptual and practical development, Searching shows that by replacing 200 years of mechanistic assumptions with concepts and principles which accurately capture human and social realities, these methods generate intrinsic motivation and release human potentials for change."--Jacket
