Evidence Based Management

As part of our series on evidence based professional practice on the Managing the Professional Services Firm blog I have just put up an initial post on evidence based management.

As you might expect, this is a topic of considerable interest to Group professionals given our management improvement focus.

The proponents of evidence based management argue that it can prevent managers and management constantly reinventing the wheel. They also argue that it can help counter the fashion waves that constantly plague the management domain.

We agree with both points. However, effective application is far from easy in part because there is as yet no agreement as to what evidence based management really is.
