Evidence-based management refers to the process of applying up-to-date research to an organization's practices. Evidence-based management comes with several distinct advantages. For example, one advantage is that it creates a new pool of managers who can make informed decisions that are based on the latest standards of research.
Having managers who can make research-backed choices allows the best operational standards to flow throughout the business. Specifically, these types of managers will pass on these skills to their employees, who, through training, will pass on the skills to their underlings, and so on and so forth (Rousseau, 2006).
As such, creating a team of informed workers is one of the biggest advantages of evidence-based management.
