Make Better Decisions


Many people rely on gut instinct to make important decisions. While there are benefits to trusting your gut, you make better decisions when you pair that instinct with logic and evidence. Here are three ways to introduce evidence-based management into your decision making process:

  1. Demand evidence. Whenever anyone makes a compelling claim, ask for supporting data. Don’t take someone’s word for it.
  2. Examine logic. Look closely at the evidence and be sure the logic holds up. Be on the lookout for faulty cause-and-effect reasoning.
  3. Encourage experimentation. If you don’t have evidence, create some. Invite managers to conduct small experiments to test the viability of proposed strategies and use the resulting data to guide decisions.
