Example text

Most such change initiatives are complex. In participative action research, for example, change processes often involve many people in the implementation of change, and interventions tend to be multi-faceted and delivered in intervention “packages” (Parkes & Sparkes, 1998). This complexity makes it difficult to obtain valid results by using a single level of analysis that looks for links between changes in outcome variables (such as job satisfaction or well-being) and patterns of planned, carefully controlled, intervention exposure.

The study illustrates how a detailed examination of intervention processes can be carried out, and how the results of this process evaluation can be used to draw valid inferences from effect evaluation. Introduction The traditional quasi-experimental approach has dominated the research on the effects of organizational-level interventions within occupational health psychology 22 Nielsen, Randall, & Christensen (Semmer, 2006; Randall, Cox, & Griffiths, 2007). This research has focused on effect evaluation and has produced some positive results that show that some interventions can be very effective.
