It make sense to build management on well-researched data



Professor Denise Rousseau, Carnegie-Mellon University: The promise of Evidence Based Management


“We at Copenhagen Business School were and still are proud to have been able in 2016 to invite to a seminar with professor Denise Rousseau of Carnegie-Mellon University”.

Denise is famous for her work on “the psychological contract” – a concept she has made an everyday term for most people who works with management or working in the field of HRM.

Denise spoke of her main research interest the latest years: Evidence Based Management (EBM), the objective of which is to convince management scientists and practitioners alike that it make sense to build management on well-researched data and theoretical analyses and that both parties can profit from this. As Denise’s background hints, this does not privilege any kind of research in the management field.
