Management scholars are increasingly interested in design science. The design science perspective may help bridge the practice–academia divide by developing actionable knowledge that is grounded in evidence. An eclectic approach to design science in this article serves to develop an intervention tool for crafting work using organizational values, called value crafting. First, several ways to implement the notion of design science are explored. A combination of these design science approaches is subsequently used in a value crafting project in a multinational corporation going through an international merger. In this project, a series of studies serves to iteratively develop an intervention tool for value crafting. Finally, the key contributions of our study to the design science literature are discussed.
