Abstract

What Is Evidence-Based Management or Public Management?

It is a simple question to ask, but a complicated one to answer. Let us start with the
purpose of evidence-based approaches: to improve public management and policy
making by grounding decision making in evidence. This in turn leads to three
contentious questions: What is evidence; how is evidence used in practice, policy,
programs, and management; and what is new (or “emerging”) about the field?
