Learmonth, M. (2008) 'Speaking out : evidence-based management : a backlash against pluralism in organizational studies ?', Organization., 15 (2). pp. 283-291.
Methodological and ideological pluralism has been a defining feature of much organizational analysis for many years now—although resistance to it has always been present. The rise of `evidence-based management' (EBM) is read as the latest form of resistance to pluralism— one that might prove particularly hard to refuse given the popularity of many other forms of evidence-based practices. So I explore the prospects for EBM within organization studies and some of its implications for those who value the continuation of pluralistic forms of analysis in organizational research.
