This article is part of an ongoing series of articles on evidence-based knowledge management.
Evidence-based practice is nothing new or complicated or mind-blowing. It isn’t a disruptive paradigm-shifting solution to every problem. It doesn’t involve convoluted equations, and you don’t need a team of brainiacs. It won’t push your thinking way outside the box with awesome concepts. It will do something much more exciting, interesting, and important than all of these put together: It will help you to make better decisions.1
The links on this page have been collated to help you make better decisions through evidence-based practice in knowledge management (KM). Some of the links are to RealKM Magazine articles and article series, and others to external resources.
