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.
Advanced training and coaching program
During the basic training and coaching program, gaps in the organization’s EBP capacity and/or the participants' EBP skills will be identified. Based on the outcome and available budget, the basic program can be followed by an advanced program focused on a specific skill, such as conducting a Rapid Evidence Assessment. For further information, please contact us.
CEBMa does NOT offer consulting services – instead of advising organizations a solution to their problems, we instead teach them how to solve their problems themselves.
Rapid Evidence Assessments (REAs)
CEBMa supports comapnies, 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.
The Center for Evidence-Based Management provides active support to universities and business schools in developing curricula for teaching management students in the principles of evidence-base practice. For further information, please contact us.
