This chapter presents a specific approach to research in the field of organizational change and development: qualimetric intervention-research. The object of organizational change is considered complex, intangible, and transient, which is particularly challenging when trying to capture information through scientific observation. Intervention-research enables the involvement of a large number of informants through cognitive interactivity and contradictory intersubjectivity. It progressively results in a body of information referred to as the Socio-Economic Approach to Management, which is based on the concept of generic contingency that is comparable to scientific approaches in medical research.
