    Abstract

    New Ways of Working (NewWoW) refers to knowledge-intensive work in which knowledge is applied to produce novel and innovative tools to different application areas. The aim of the present paper is to present three key features of New Ways of Working, and to apply two theoretical frameworks for the analysis of these features. Firstly, we present a conceptual approach according to which New Ways of Working factors are embedded in and influenced by a surrounding set of events, and in most cases, these factors and a specific outcome measure are influenced by surrounding events. Secondly, we present a model of psychic self-regulation which allows for studying well-being in the workplace from the perspective of the construction of the self. Some implications of the application of these theoretical frameworks are considered.
