I recently came across a group I really love that is all about evidence based practice in business.
They are called - Center for Evidence Based Management: https://www.cebma.org/ Professor Rob Briner, who is Professor of Organizational Psychology at Queen Mary University of London, had a presentation on it and here is one of the slides.
The reason to take an evidence based approach isn't because it will guarantee success, only that it will reduce uncertainty and make us more likely to succeed. YES!!!!!
I say this in my course - Planning for Success. https://humanistlearning.com/video-planning-for-personal-success/ You can't control every variable. All you can do is increase the odds in your favor or against you. And there are ways to increase the odds of success. The main way - is to take a science based approach!
This touches on VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity). By taking a science based approach, you can reduce uncertainty and ambiguity and also lessen complexity through scientific understanding. That leaves - volatility, which can be handled philosophically by accepting you can't control everything.
I don't know about you, but I would much rather deal with one problem then four. Taking a science based approach really does increase your chances of success.
