Evidence vs. HiPPOs

Evidence-based practice is a method to consider the  quality and trustworthiness of multiple sources of information, through a structured approach, in order to make more informed decisions. It recognises and values the mutual inputs from our professional practice, organisational data, scientific research and stakeholder perspectives in a considered way. When applied to, for example, the notion of 'employee engagement', it challenges the validity of the premise on the grounds that it is ill-defined, conflated with other ideas and nothing new, ill-measured, poorly evidenced in terms of links to organisational performance, yet overly and mis-promoted. Ouch!
