How do you use data analysis in an accreditation assessment? What are the added value and challenges of an information-driven way of working in the quality assurance sector? The RvA wants to work in a more information-driven way and is starting a programme around this topic. Therefore, we found it important to discuss this with our stakeholders. The participants agreed that there is great added value in an information driven way of working. But that there are also some major challenges to overcome together, such as the generation of qualitative usable data.
As one of the participants pointed out, the following questions arise: ”What insights does analysis of the already available data provide? What do we learn from this analysis about how we perform? And on which issues should we pay more attention in the future?”
The wish was also expressed to start small and then expand. This method produces useful results at an early stage.
