Utilising Evidence In Decision Making
It is often the case that bad policy and poor management decisions can arise from the lack of consideration of relevant evidence, or even the absence of any evidence at all.
This course explores how to properly source the right evidence while challenging assumptions made about evidence collection and evaluation. Part of our Policy Skills series, Utilising Evidence in Decision Making is available on request and will help delegates understand the importance and benefits of having firm evidence.
At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our courses to each delegate, ensuring that courses are applicable to attendee’s role and organisations so that each delegate can get the most from the training. Our courses and trainers are constantly updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
Delegates who need to develop their ability to source or judge the evidence for business or policy decisions.
Delegates will gain a finely-tuned understanding of the importance of a firm evidence base as well as the knowledge necessary to recognise where this fits into their typical policy or project cycles.
Delegates will also understand how to effectively find and sift through information, as well as when it’s appropriate to work with specialists in order to gather the information required.
