Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter we adopt a design-science approach to demonstrate how evidence-based management can extend experience-based management by judiciously gathering, validating, selecting, and using knowledge. The creative processes in which valid knowledge is used in designing and creating preferred futures are discussed, as well as the nature of the design knowledge needed for this. This includes knowledge on possible interventions with expected outcomes and on the mechanisms producing these outcomes.

Keywords: design science, collaboration between scientists and practitioners, design propositions, spin-offs, preferred future, professional practice, technical rationality
