follow all directions

When involving stakeholders in the data collection and analysis process, it is essential for them to understand the difference between validated data versus basic data points. It is important to assure the stakeholders that the quantitative data are quality information that has been looked at multiple ways, such as tracking the data by hand, using grid organizers to examine the data, reconciliation reports, and/or verifying data relevant to the benchmarks set. These efforts are driven by a desire to validate the numbers being put into recording spaces (e.g., computers, Excel spreadsheets) and to make sure the numbers look correct, as much as possible. Likewise, when examining qualitative data, you want to validate the information/data that subjects are giving you.

For example, you may have the subjects look at and verify the accuracy of transcripts and/or you may read back to them what they said and ask them to confirm, deny, and/or clarify that the information gathered is accurately represented. Another method of validation is triangulation of data in research studies whereby multiple sources of data or multiple approaches to analyzing the data are employed as well as multiple people looking at outcomes to make sure the data look correct.

Validated data are generated using data collection and analysis processes that can be replicated and yield similar results in other contexts. A primary intent of involving stakeholders in the use of validated data is to generate trust in the process. Therefore, involving stakeholders in data collection and analysis requires educating them about the related process(es) as simply and precisely as possible, whether they are part of the data being collected or consumers of the reported data.

For this Discussion, you will assume the role of a consultant and provide an evidence-based approach for an organization regarding getting stakeholders involved to help with data collection and analysis.
