Evidence-based management is a simple idea. It just means finding the best evidence that you can, facing those facts, and acting on those facts – rather than doing what everyone else does, what you have always done, or what you thought was true. It isn’t an excuse for inaction. Leaders of organizations must have the courage to act on the best facts they have right now, and the humility to change what they do as better information is found. And it isn’t new or original. Yet surprisingly few organizations actually do it – and those that do trump the competition. Our primary professional goal over the next few years is to help spark an evidence-based management movement.Evidence-based Management (EBM)
