Evidence-based management (EBM) is a growing area in approaches to managerial understanding and decision making. In the current research we examine the relevance of evidence in the student classroom context. Specifically, we suggest that organizational behavior teaching can be improved by taking a broader view toward evidence that is inclusive of four forms of evidence: faith, analytics, intuition, and research. Together the four forms of evidence comprise the Evidence Matrix. The authors share their findings and suggestions for the use of the Evidence Matrix applied to two sections of an organizational behavior class.
