A critical component of any research project is the framework used. The framework will determine the accuracy and usefulness of the research results. At ASDF we assist with:
- Developing community engagement frameworks to ensure representative coverage and a comprehensive exploration of the topic.
- Defining a framework for a research project, including objectives, methodology and analysis.
- Developing tools to assist in keeping track of research and data, with a focus on usability and integration with pre-existing systems.
- Developing e-learning training to ensure that staff understand data management frameworks and requirements (particularly with regards to privacy laws).
Some examples of work we have conducted in this area follow…
