To make evidence-based management(EBMgt) commonplace and effective, senior managers and academics must develop the capabilities that problem-focused research requires. Drawing lessons from alternative doctoral programs and problem-focused research, this chapter offers its readers concrete ways to support EBMgt in their educational, research, and senior management activities. It covers three related developments: (1) alternative doctoral-education programs producing a community of managerially experienced practitioner-scholars, that fosters EBMgt by bridging managerial and academic practice; (2) problem-focused research, providing a new model of research for more effective EBMgt, refined in alternative doctoral programs; and (3) overcoming barriers to EBMgt, new educational pedagogies and problem-focused research via relevance, respect, resourcefulness and reframing, or “the 4Rs.” This chapter presents these developments as exemplified through an alternative doctoral program’s 15-year evolution.
