A Case Study: Evolution of Evidence-based Practices

A Study about Evolution of Evidence-based Practices

This paper addresses one facet of the effort to translate growing behavioral science knowledge into concrete benefits – the evidence-based practices movement. We describe recent developments in this effort and present as a case study the experience of Norway in implementing evidence-based practices.

Over the past 30 years, behavioral scientists have identified numerous evidence-based treatment and prevention programs, policies, and other practices (e.g., Biglan et al., 2004). Societies have the potential to help achieve a significant reduction in the prevalence of the most common and costly behavioral and psychological problems that develop in childhood and adolescence—if they can implement evidence-based practices widely and effectively.

Case Studies for Crafting A Human Resource Strategy To Foster Organizational Agility

A decade ago, the CEO of Albert Einstein Healthcare Network (AEHN), anticipating a tumultuous and largely unpredictable period in its industry, undertook to convert this organization from one that was basically stable and complacent to one that was agile, “nimble, and change-hardy”. This case study briefly addresses AEHN’s approaches to business strategy and organization design, but focuses primarily on the human resource strategy that emerged over time to foster the successful attainment of organizational agility. Although exploratory, the study suggests a number of lessons for those who are, or will be, studying or trying to create and sustain this promising new organizational paradigm.

Human Resource Strategy

Increasingly, organizations find themselves operating in environments characterized by unprecedented, unrelenting, and largely unpredictable change. So it’s not surprising to find that serious searches are underway for new and better ways of strategizing, organizing, and operating – that is, managing – in dynamic and turbulent circumstances.
