Abstract: “Intervention Crafting to Take hold (or Not): Exploring Aligned and Countervailing Customization of a Complex Organizational Work-Life Intervention in a Field Experiment

"Although interest in organizational intervention research is growing, we lack understanding of the process of implementation and many initiatives fail to take hold. We use work-life interventions as a lens to conceptualize and develop theory on the phenomenon of organizational intervention crafting. 

Organizational intervention crafting is defined as the degree to which members collaborate across group boundaries (e.g. job, hierarchical, identity) to explore customizing activities and tactics (cognitive, relational, physical) that advance or subvert the adoption of initiatives designed to change work cultures and structures to facilitate employees’ ability to manage work and nonwork demands."
