What We Can Do for You …


Education & training

Although evidence-based management sounds straightforward, gathering, understanding and applying evidence requires a particular set of skills and practical knowledge. For this reason CEBMa has, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative, developed online course modules that will develop your EBM skills and enhance your understanding of how an evidence-based approach can support your organization’s decision-making and management practice.

Consultation & coaching

Evidence-based management is not just about applying skills and knowledge: it’s about taking a different perspective on the organization and its day-to-day concerns. Organizational issues, however, are often messy: it is not always clear what the problem is being solved, and organizational politics sometimes make it hard to take an evidence-based approach. For this reason, CEBMa offers members direct access to personal support and advice from its EBMgt experts through Skype or Zoom. Read more about becoming a member here >> 



What We Can Do for Your Organization …

Evidence-based management concerns skills and knowledge you can apply yourself. However, unless you are running a one-person business on a dessert island, evidence-based management involves other people, such as colleagues bosses or clients. Therefore, building evidence-based capacity within your organization by introducing the approach to the people in your organisation is crucial. The Center for Evidence-Based Management provides different types of workshops and services for organizations. For an overview of our clients, click here >>


Awareness session

An awareness session involves an interactive, fun, and challenging one- to two-hour session for 10 to 50 participants. During this session the basic principles of evidence-based practice/ decision-making (what it is, why we need it, common misconceptions, etc.) are discussed. In addition several ways in which leaders/ managers/ consultants can become more evidence-based will be presented together with some practical examples of how critically appraised evidence from multiple sources can be used to improve decision-making processes within an organisation. For further information, please contact us.


Basic training and coaching program

The basic training program involves four (three-hour) small group and problem-based learning sessions, in which participants will learn EBP principles and modes of operation. The basic (group) coaching program supports the participants in managing a practical issue, project, or change initiative according to the principles of EBP. Each (two-hour) coaching session will be held immediately after the specific training session it supports. For further information, please contact us.


Focussed training and coaching program

A focussed training program entails the same learning and coaching sessions as the basic training program, but is extended with two (four-hour) sessions that provide evidence-based insights relevant to a specific management function (e.g. HR or Change Management), topic (e.g. talent management, leadership, performance management, autonomous teams, etc.), or issue (performance, turnover, recruitment, culture change, etc)For further information, please contact us.


Rapid Evidence Assessments (REAs)

CEBMa supports companies, consulting firms, and professional associations by conducting a Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA), a method of drawing together and critically evaluating the best available scientific evidence on a specific topic or question within a limited time frame. Conducting REAs, however, only contributes indirectly to CEBMa’s mission. An organization’s request to conduct an REA will therefore always include an advanced training and coaching program to teach people within the organization how to conduct their own REA. For further information, please contact us.
