Members of GISF's broad network are invited to complete a new survey by Chris Bradley of the University of Portsmouth on the role of collaboration in analytical assessments.
This survey by Chris Bradley of the University of Portsmouth intends to draw on the knowledge and professional practice of GISF’s network, identifying best practices and gaps in collaborative analysis (at all levels) in producing analytical assessments.
The findings intend to contribute to understandings of how collaborative and structural analysis can aid in increasing the accuracy, speed, and transparency of how analytical judgements are made. The survey is based upon the theory that, for organisations that often have to make difficult decisions with limited or ambiguous data, mistakes in analysis can be reduced by improving information flows among staff and partners.
This survey is the foundation of a collaborative project between the researcher and GISF’s broad network. The survey is designed to stimulate thinking and discussion, and the time spent completing it will depend on what level members wish to contribute to open questions. However, there is a ‘save and return’ option in order for participants to complete the survey as it suits them.
Your responses will be entirely anonymous; we will not collect any information that can identify you or your organisation. The collected data comply with data protection regulations (GDPR) and will be securely stored by the University of Portsmouth for ten years and then destroyed. You can withdraw at any point in the survey by navigating away from the web page.
The survey will remain open until 1st September 2020.
