Abstract [en]

The professional world, as well as, the single employee faces multiple challenges in daily routine. To improve individual health along with the whole organization, interventions are conducted. However, a summary of requirements for successful initiatives are not existing. The study describes a Group Concept Mapping approach with multinational and multidisciplinary experts in the area of organizational development. From 112 single requirements for successful interventions, finally the following 15 clusters are identified, which function as a framework for the implementation of interventions: (1) Context alignment/intervention fit, (2) Continual modification, (3) Assessment (situation & risk)/ recurrent, (4) Planning/structural change processes, (5) Active collaboration from different stakeholders, (6) Transparent communication, (7) Pay attention to participants, (8) Leadership, (9) Supportive climate for learning, (10) Persistence/ complexity, (11) Point of departure/prerequisite, (12) Impact (what kind & monitoring), (13) Perceived value, (14) Variation and (15) Single Statements. 

The provided knowledge can be used by practitioners -especially consultants -in the process of planning, conducting and evaluating a successful initiative.
