Introduction to Evidence-based Management (EBM) and Agile Learning
WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS Course?
The starting point to utilize the vast amount of evidence-based knowledge in the area of change is a basic understanding of the foundation of evidence-based management. This introduction session provides you an introduction in the fundamentals of EBM. It will cover the following topics and will last for one week:
introducing the team members and the team moderators to each other,
understanding the rational behind Evidence-based Management and the basics required to become an Evidence-Based Manager,
presenting the agile learning approach and how it will be implemented in this EBMLT,
introducing the CQ Collaboration Platform.
Beside above mentioned objectives, there will be plenty of time to clarify open questions with the team moderators during the introduction week.
This CQ-Dossier provides an introduction in science-based and evidence-based management and how professionals and managers can implement it. Questions such as how to find, read, evaluate and interpret scientific evidence are addressed. In addition, the limits of scientific evidence are discussed.
In this CQ Dossier, the foundation of understanding science and reading scientific papers for management practitioners will be discussed: knowledge of how to prove cause & effect, basic statistical awareness, and an understanding of science as tentative and self-correcting.
To be an effective and analytical consumer of the literature on evidence-based management strategies, some familiarity and comfort with statistics is necessary. This CQ Dossiers introduces those principles for management practitioners.
