Details

Evidence-based management (EBMgt) derives principles of good management from scientific research, meta-analysis, case studies, and literature reviews, and then translates them into practice.

Highly developed in medicine, this technique is just now beginning to be applied to business and public administration. Evidence-Based Public Management is the first systematic assessment of EBMgt and its potential application in public management.

The book is designed to present an overview of EBMgt, identify effective ways of applying evidence in public management, guide public managers in applying evidence, and guide public management researchers in more effectively translating their research into practice.

In addition to a thorough overview of the principles of EBMgt, the book also includes applied chapters devoted to the practical concerns of public management: performace-based management; human capital management; IT management; leadership development; and health care administration
