Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present a developed questionnairewhich measure Appreciative Inquiry, Lean values and co-workers health. Thepurpose is also to explore if and how Appreciative Inquiry correlates with Leanvalues and co-workers’ perceived health in an organisation working with Lean.Methodology/Approach: To investigate the relationship between Lean,Appreciative Inquiry and perceived co-worker health, a questionnaire wasdeveloped based on two previously tested questionnaires. The new questionnairewas answered by 841 co-workers at a Swedish municipality and was thenanalysed to explore in what way Appreciative Inquiry correlates with a numberof Lean values as well as perceived co-worker health.Findings: All variables were found to be significantly correlated with thevariable ‘Appreciative Inquiry’. The variable ‘Continuous improvements’ relatesmost to ‘Appreciative Inquiry’ followed by ‘Eliminating Waste’ as thosevariables can be considered to have a large positive relationship. ‘SupportiveLeadership’ and ‘System view’ have a medium positive relation to ‘AppreciativeInquiry’ and the variables ‘Health’ and ‘Customer focus’ have a small relation toAppreciative Inquiry in this context.
