Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager
IN THIS SUMMARY
Like many skills, management is both an art and a science. The art of management is unique to an individual. The science of management, on the other hand, is based on empirical data and can be taught and replicated in any number of environments and situations. Scientific management techniques—or “evidence-based management”—are the focus of Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager.
Author Gary P. Latham, an award-winning researcher and respected organizational psychologist, advises managers to take empirically proven steps to help their teams reach and maintain peak performance. Managers will learn how to improve their own performance, too, using well-researched methods.
