Intervention design paper – topic and thesis statement

All students will complete a paper in which they completely design an  intervention for their present organization (or a previous organization  for students not presently employed). The paper should be a minimum of  10-15 pages in length (excluding the cover sheet and bibliography  pages). This paper must identify a problem, state a goal, include how  metrics, assessment and feedback would be handled, and cover the  intervention (change process) from start to finish. The paper will be  written in APA format. It needs a sufficient number of sources, which  should be sources not covered in the course (i.e., not the textbook).  Wikipedia and web sites are not acceptable sources. Using them as  sources will affect your grade unfavorably. The paper will be  double-spaced, typed using Courier New font (12 point), with one-inch  margins. The paper will contain a title page, an outline, and a  bibliography. The paper will be developed in stages, with each stage  having its own due date.

All students will design an intervention (change effort) from start  to finish for their present organization. For students not presently  employed, they should design an intervention for an organization of  which they are or have been a member.  This paper must identify the  problem or issue to be changed, and specify a goal that would signify  success. This paper must also include how metrics, assessment, and  feedback would be handled; i.e., the complete change or intervention  process.  The paper will be developed in stages, with each stage having  its own due date (see below).
