Chris Corrigan pointed me to this post by Bob Sutton: Evidence-Based Management Doesn’t Mean Just Quantitative Evidence. The post, and the comments added, make lots of sense to me. I read one of Sutton’s previous books, The Knowing-Doing Gap but hadn’t realised he’s also responsible for Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths and Total Nonsense and The No-Asshole Rule.
It’s nice to run into a B School professor type with a clear preference for Anglo-Saxon over Latin. I’ve added his blog to my aggregator!
