Sharing Value: Keep people actively involved during the work
The Data Protection and Use Policy (DPUP) recommends an inclusive approach. Maintain interest in the insights by giving updates, inviting feedback, collaborating and recognising people’s contributions.
What involvement might look like
Ongoing involvement in analysing the data and providing insights may include:
- seeking regular feedback from people identified at the outset
- seeking more formal review of insights in draft form, for example from an advisory group
- day-to-day involvement from other agencies to develop the insights
periodic secondments or structured collaborative projects.
Things to consider
- How can the effort and cost of involving others be recognised or shared?
- As the work is carried out, what’s the best way to monitor that the developing insights are valuable and usable to others?
- If people are interested but only wish to be kept informed, how might that work?
- If others are working on related ideas, are there opportunities to collaborate and reduce overall effort or enhance overall value?
- If there will be effort involved in collecting the information, are there ways to minimise this or to recognise the cost of doing so?
