Project Planning

Seven important questions about any research project
Before developing a research proposal, ask...

  1. How will the data be used; what benefits will the findings provide, and to whom?

  2. How confident are you that your data will be valid, reliable and precise?

  3. Is the project worth the investment, and are you getting optimal value for the lowest possible cost?

  4. Will you get clear, actionable and timely research findings, presented in appropriate formats?

  5. Are you using the most advanced methods and skills available for the specific research task?

  6. Will the project provide data or analytical insights that extend beyond the original objectives of the assignment?

  7. Have you exhausted all resources of available data to confirm that the answers you are looking for don't already exist within your body of knowledge?
