Product Description

From medicine to education, a national movement has been fundamentally changing the way standards of professional practice are set. Once based more on intuition, the demand for measurements backed by hard, scientific fact now finds its rightful place in the business world with Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager. Arguing that there is too much art and not enough science in the way managers manage, Gary Latham brings together a unique combination of research and step-by-step practicality in this compact and highly practical toolkit of research-backed techniques, methods, and quick-to-implement action steps for hiring, inspiring, training, motivating and appraising employees to deliver high performance.

Editorial Reviews

"In Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager, Gary Latham delivers a well-reasoned and highly practical approach to delivering superior results through more scientific management approaches. Having seen some of his ideas implemented in our organization and others, I can easily testify to their effectiveness. This book is a welcome respite from some of the more common psychobabble on the art of management and leadership." -- Donald Guloien, president and CEO, Manulife Financial
