Evidence-Based Management : How to Use Evidence to Make Better Organizational Decisions Paperback / softback


Decisions in businesses and organizations are too often based on fads, fashions and the success stories of famous CEOs.

At the same time, traditional models and new cutting-edge solutions often fail to deliver on what they promise.

This situation leaves managers, business leaders, consultants and policymakers with a profound challenge: how can we stay away from trends and quick fixes, and instead use valid and reliable evidence to support the organization?In response to this problem, evidence-based management has evolved with the goal of improving the quality of decision-making by using critically evaluated evidence from multiple sources - organizational data, professional expertise, stakeholder values and scientific literature.

This book sets out and explains the specific skills needed to gather, understand and use evidence to make better-informed organizational decisions. Evidence-Based Management is a comprehensive guide that provides current and future managers, consultants and organizational leaders with the knowledge and practical skills to improve the quality and outcome of their decision-making.

Online resources include case studies, exercises, lecture slides and further reading.
