||The future of organizational interventions: Addressing the challenges of today's organizations
||3rd quarter 2010, Vol.24, No.3, p.219-233. 65 ref.
||This article discusses issues to be considered to improve the effectiveness of organizational interventions. First, there is a need to understand how and why interventions work. This calls for an examination of the processes connecting interventions to the desired outcomes. Second, attention should be paid to the appropriateness of interventions. Problems may be difficult to address, for example when they constitute inherent conditions of the job. Third, the use of a quasi-experimental study design does not guarantee a valid picture of the effectiveness of an intervention. For example, control groups may not be comparable to the experimental group, or participants may not be reached by the intervention. Based on these considerations, it is concluded that mixed methods designs are needed.
