This book is an introduction to SOAR, which is a new strength-based planning process that is based on Appreciative Inquiry’s method of strategic thinking and dialogue process. The book presents both the theory/concept of SOAR as well as case studies to show examples of how the principles operate. The book delivers a process that is not only very easy to follow but also a process that allows people to engage in the process, leading to a highly creative and educational experience for all. It is a useful guide for anyone tired of conventional strategic plans that simply are an exercise and chore rather than a meaningful process. SOAR is such a meaningful process that can energize a company’s leadership efforts, and this Thin Book of Soar shows why the process works and how it works.
