In an increasingly complex world, management and decision-making are even more challenging. Using a variety of sources of evidence is a way to avoid our inbuilt, unconscious biases, enabling us to make better, more informed decisions. Eric Barends, MD of CEBMa shares the drivers behind the evidence-based movement and how to gather different sources of evidence to contribute to critical thinking and support decision making. Eric also offers advice on how to judge the reliability and trustworthiness of research that we read about on a daily basis.
Later in the episode, AWA Associate, Céline Chaverot, shares what she’s seeing in France as French companies and multinationals get to grips with the “back to the office” debate. While many have been waiting to see what would happen and what others would do, it seems employees have made their own minds up about what they want for the future.
