Over the past decade, the call for evidence-based management has been on the rise. Managers have become increasingly skeptical of advice that is based solely on anecdotes, otherwise known as the "art of management"; they demand, instead, proof that the management practices espoused by authors in the field are truly effective. Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager delivers the goods, covering a wide range of critical management skills, such as hiring, inspiring, training, developing, motivating and coaching. Readers are rewarded with a thorough understanding of how to put the science of management to work for themselves and their organizations.
