The main objective of DINNOS is to evaluate the effectiveness of the ISS on outcomes at the organisational- and the individual level by using a RCT. This trial will be conducted with 300 SMEs and 400 individual employees from Germany and the UK. SMEs and individual employees will be randomly allocated to an experimental and a waiting-list control group. First, the effectiveness of the ISS will be examined in the experimental and afterwards in the waiting-list control group.
On the individual level, DINNOS will examine the effects of the cognitive skills training on individual creativity and innovation behaviour. The effects of the leadership training will be examined on self-reported outcomes such as servant leadership, appreciation of age diversity, and age stereotypes as well as more objective outcomes such as submission of ideas, and patents.
