    Dear Colleagues, 

    The Management Education and Development (MED) division of the Academy of Management is delighted to invite you to an interactive video webinar on Evidence-based Management (EBMgt).

    EBMgt is the conscientious use of multiple sources of evidence in making organizational decisions. The four key sources of evidence include scientific findings, organizational facts, stakeholder perspectives and professional expertise. The EBMgt process has six steps: Ask (a practice question), Acquire (obtain evidence), Appraise (evaluate the quality of the evidence), Aggregate (combine the difference sources), Apply (use evidence to make a decision), and Assess (evaluate the outcomes or success of the decision). The webinar will introduce the EBMgt process and provide guidance on how to continue to develop your EBMgt practice.

    Title: Evidence-Based Management 101

    This live, interactive video webinar will bring together academics and practitioners from around the world to discuss the latest topics in responsible management learning and education. Participants who are new to the field are most welcome and the webinar will help them get engaged and up-to-date.

The webinar is free, and you can participate using any electronic device (computer, tablet, phone, etc.) where you install Zoom (a free app).
