Evidence-Based Management: This is how WE do it.

  1. 1. THIS IS HOW WE DO IT Evidence Based Management AOM 2014 – session 308 Evidence-Based Management in Action
  2. 2. Government of Flanders 2
  3. 3. Who am I?
  4. 4. The Dream 4 All decisions concerning HR & OD in the government of Flanders are grounded on the best available evidence.
  5. 5. 5 It's a matter of professional integrity! No girl wants to marry a doctor who can't tell if a man's dead or not! Scherlock Holmes, 2009
  6. 6. Becoming an evidence based organisation 6 1. It starts with your mind 2. Everyday practice and learning 3. Integrating evidence based practice in the organisation Rousseau, D.M. and Barends, E.G.R. (2011) ‘Becoming an evidence-based HR practitioner’. Human Resource Management Journal 21: 3, 221–235.
  7. 7. Becoming an evidence based organisation 7 • Our plan: • Develop competencies • Applying the methodology • How do we implement it? • Is it feasible? • Communication/ Marketing • Convincing the organisation • Blog, presentations, factcheck,… -> Support from CEBMA
  8. 8. 8
  9. 9. Developing competencies 9 • Trained 12 colleagues during 5 halve days • Content: • Developing awareness • formulating explicit questions • looking for evidence • appraising evidence • HR-analytics (I-nostix) • … -> the 1+6 A’s (awareness + ask, acquire, appraise, aggregate, apply, assess) • Goal: • providing basic competencies • Providing a common language -> It starts with your mind - Awareness
  10. 10. Developing competencies 10 What we've learned  Involve corporate HR & OD + the ones who implement it  We created basic knowledge of EBM  We created awarenes • understanding of the added value and even necessity of EBM • Inspired colleagues with new possibilities and ideas
  11. 11. Developing competencies 11 What we've learned  But how to implement, how wil we do it? • Searching for scientific evidence= challengeing for some colleagues • What about external partners • What will we expect from partners? • What about expectations of our clients? • ….  5 sessions, too much? • Depends on background • Some expressed a preference for a shorter but more intensive training
  12. 12. Applying the methodology 12 • Try-out in already planned projects: • Burn-out, high potential program, new ways of working, autonomous teams and organisational values • Goal • Building a portfolio of cases • Learn about how difficult/ easy it is in reality • Practicing the competenties -> Everyday practice and learning
  13. 13. Applying the methodology 13 What we've learned • Difficult to implement in ongoing projects • Threatning to internal consultant and client • Difficult to question already made choices > integrate the methodology in new projects from the beginning > Implement it step by step
  14. 14. Applying the methodology 14 What we've learned • Evidence based working challenges external partners • Evidence based working asks difficult questions towards proposed tools & methodologies > Communicate with external providers > When writing a commision demand for EB proposals > External partners are able and willing to follow the EB logic > Acquired knowledge can not be neglected
  15. 15. Applying the methodology 15 • Evidence based working challenges our beliefs • External comments are sometimes right > Question our own position > Criticaly exploring our own choices makes our policies better
  16. 16. Applying the methodology 16 • Evidence based working is possible • Exploring the 4 sources of evidence might seem time- consuming > Does every HR-professional need the skill to consult scientific evidence? > In the beginning focus on projects with big and/or long-term impact > There is a learning curve
  17. 17. Communication 17 • Infographic • Communicating in an attractive and positive fashion • Blog • Sharing our experiences • Factchecker • Showing the potential of Evidence Based working • Involve decision-makers • If they expect ‘evidence based’ propositions, we will take a huge leap forward -> It starts with your mind
  18. 18. 18
  19. 19. The future 19 • Realising the dream step by step • First focus: Important projects with potential big impact and/or long term consequences • Toolboxes • New corporate policies • Next challenge: integrating Evidence Based working in our processes • Involving our external partners • Building a solid knowledge base= long term project
  20. 20. The future 20 • Providing a competence pool • Making a pool of experts in evidence based working available for the organisation • Marketing evidence based working in the organisation • A what works centre for management in Flanders?
  21. 21. Questions? 21
