Start with...

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 668 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Data collection improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 668 standard requirements:

  1. Were changes made during the file extract period to how the data are processed, such as changes to mode of data collection, changes to instructions for completing the application form, changes to the edit, changes to classification codes, or changes to the query system used to retrieve the data?

  2. Traditional data protection principles include fair and lawful data processing; data collection for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes; accurate and kept up-to-date data; data retention for no longer than necessary. Are additional principles and requirements necessary for IoT applications?

  3. Does the design of the program/projects overall data collection and reporting system ensure that, if implemented as planned, it will collect and report quality data?

  4. It raises issues of stewardship of highly valued data; for example, what data should be saved, how does one save it, and how does one maintain an important data collection?

  5. How is source data collected (paper questionnaire, computer assisted person interview, computer assisted telephone interview, web data collection form)?

  6. What should I consider in selecting the most resource-effective data collection design that will satisfy all of my performance or acceptance criteria?

  7. What ideas do you have to address privacy concerns related to surveillance equipment, data collection, data management protocols, and operational protocols?

  8. Is it understood that the risk management effectiveness critically depends on data collection, analysis and dissemination of relevant data?

  9. Does your technology use a well-rounded approach to mobile user data collection that addresses both cookie-based and cookieless environments?

  10. Are we collecting data once and using it many times, or duplicating data collection efforts and submerging data in silos?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Data collection book in PDF containing 668 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

    Quality is a topic that is very important for me right now, and it should be important for every team. This book contains a self-assessment that can be useful for your organization to find out where you currently are. If you struggle to ask the right questions about your efforts, this book will give many of them, and a way to score your answers

    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).
