Lunch and Learn Evidence-Based Management

Lunch and Learn: Evidence-Based Management

The ANU College of Business and Economics are hosting a Lunch and Learn session in the discipline of Management.

This workshop is for public and private sector industry professionals who are looking to take the next step in their career and move into middle and senior management by upskilling with a postgraduate qualification in management from the ANU.

This session provides a taster of the postgraduate level course Evidence-Based Management over a working lunch*.

Presented by Dr Alessandra Capezio, Associate Professor of Management at the ANU, the Evidence Based Management session will briefly cover:

  • What is Evidence-Based Management
  • 5 Reasons it is so important
  • What steps you or your organisation can take to be more evidence based

Alessandra will also cover the postgraduate programs available in Management at the ANU and scholarship opportunities available for prospective students.

There is also the opportunity to speak to Student Advisors from the ANU one on one about your postgraduate journey.

*$15 registration fee covers the cost for lunch.

About the session - Evidence-Based Management

Our postgraduate management programs integrate principles of Evidence-Based Practice in Management (EBMgt). EBMgt is at the cutting edge of global business education, providing the groundwork for future leaders. EBMgt involves the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of the best available evidence about and within business organisations for decision-making. In this masterclass, you will learn the theory behind how to translate principles from best evidence to management practice.

Bias and error often contaminate managers’ perceptions and judgements, which guide and inform action and decision-making. Learning EBM principles and skills helps managers engage in critical analytical thinking, improve their decision awareness, make decisions based on the best available evidence, and utilise more responsible management decisions and practices. The aim of this session is to introduce the basic EBM principles and skills, and to understand how these skills can be applied to management practice, in particular people management. This Lunch and Learn session will provide an insight to the emergence of EBM in the world of business.

The ANU currently offers a more comprehensive EBM teaching through postgraduate level programs for leaders and managers who want to:

• Enhance their critical analytical thinking

• Improve their research skills within an evidence-based management framework

• Strengthen their decision making quality and awareness by applying the best available evidence to a practical issue or problem.
