Show Summary Details


As a practicing evidence-based manager over the past two decades, I describe how my use of evidence has been shaped by my professional education and the nature of our organization, a residential care facility for the elderly. Practices I have found particularly valuable in promoting evidence use and good decision making include ongoing management development, regular readings by myself and direct reports of books and articles based on scientific evidence, use of logic models to lay out the critical information and assumptions relevant to managerial decisions, and quality relationships with local universities and their faculty. I also discuss the challenges of making decisions that are evidence based.

Keywords: evidence-based management practice; scientific evidence; logic models; practitioner-academic relationship; evidence-based management culture; leading an evidence-based organization
