"Evidence-Based Management addresses a vital need. By lucidly conveying the perspectives of both researchers and practitioners, it should help each community to do its job, protect each from simplistic accounts of one another's work, and facilitate collaboration between them."--Baruch Fischhoff, Howard Heinz University Professor, Department of Engineering and Public Policy and Institute for Politics and Strategy, Carnegie Mellon University
"Evidence-Based Management seeks to improve the decision making lessons taught in our business schools as well as the decision frameworks business managers and leaders use routinely. If Enron's board, its risk management department, its accounting, finance and legal teams had adopted the principles and practices described in this book, Enron would be alive and well today."--Sherron Watkins, Enron Whistleblower, Time Person of the Year 2002
"Evidence-Based Management is another way of saying 'we deal in facts, in reality'. The differentiating factor in Google's people strategy was that we relied on evidence-based management to separate what we 'hoped would be true' from reality. This superb book gives you the tools to build your own roadmap to excellence."--Laszlo Bock, CEO of Humu and former SVP of People Operations at Google/Alphabet
