Intervention mapping

Combining a person centered and ecological approach to develop, implement and sustain innovation in organizations

Workplace innovation (WPI) aims to strengthen both an organization’s performance and the employees’ quality of work life by improving the work environment in an organization. This contribution proposes the intervention mapping (IM) protocol to develop, implement, and evaluate and sustain WPI in an organization. IM combines person-centred and ecological (multilevel) views to involve individuals who function on diverse levels within an organization. The protocol applies theory-based change strategies to establish concrete and effective individual and environmental changes that are tailored to the local context of the organization.
