Program Evaluation Criteria and Time
Evaluation Strategy
Estimated Budget
◦ This model provides a template for the process of conceiving, planning,
implementing, and evaluating the intervention
◦ It is structured as a participatory model to incorporate ideas that will maximally
help achieve the program targets.
◦ This framework enables the program executers to collect more accurate
◦ It helps building ownership of the intervention, leading to more organizational
support and a greater chance of success.
◦ It incorporates evaluation of the process, the intervention itself, and the final
outcome that allows momentum monitoring and response to gaps.
Transtheoretical Model (TTM)
◦ This model would cover people at different stages that have different information
needs. It will allow putting the target population in the appropriate stage and
provide information, so that anticipated benefits from the intervention can be
Community Model (CM)
◦ This model addresses individuals, group, and organizational issues. It will enable
the implementation team to target different points on the organizational levels,
learn about their unique characteristics and develop interventions applicable to
that group.
Social Cognitive Model (SCT)
SCT theory explain that people learn others behaviors; therefore, participants will
have a role model who shares the same characteristics as the target population.
A selected Role Model is to be selected; i.e., the company CEO to launch the
program. The role model to be chosen will be based on popularity, power, trust
and preference
Upon successful implementation of the program and objectives achievement, the
program is proposed to be cascaded to Das Island, Rigs, Mussafah Base and the
headquarter. The program is developed in such a way that makes it transferable and
adoptable by any organization therefore can easily be transferred to other sister
companies that share similar characteristics. by that we can achieve standardization
in health and safety level across the ADNOC group and companies
Our goal is: Sustainable Health via “Workplaces Wellness”
