Be impressively well-informed and up-to-date
The researchers discovered that there are two primary pre-requisites for successful implementation of evidence-based practice: evidence-based solutions.
Primary pre-requisites for successful implementation of evidence-based practice
The first is management involvement in the whole process. This is in line with a whole slew of studies highlighting the key role middle managers play in innovation and change in organisations. Where organisations have failed (Kodak, Polaroid, Nokia, etc.) time and time again it has been shown that the perspective and lack of agility and ability of the middle managers have been central to the failure. Aligned managers, particularly middle managers hold the key to successful implementation and evidence-based solutions.
Providing relevant and understandable evidence
Secondly, the researchers found that providing access to relevant and understandable evidence (research) about practice and findings that inform decisions was a major pre-requisite for success.
This second issue of providing relevant and understandable evidence is easier in clinical situations where practice, in hospitals and healthcare for example, is usually closely associated with universities and academics. Outside of this it is important to find a reliable source that makes the latest thinking and research accessible and practically relevant.
Finding relevant and understandable evidence
The Oxford Review is an example of one of those sources of reliable, up-to-date, relevant, actionable and understandable evidence for consultants, coaches, leaders, managers, L&D, OD and HR practitioners. Indeed The Oxford Review is aimed at just this -enhancing evidence based practice; the foundation of every professionals work. Find your evidence-based solutions …
