Common Approach Guide
The Managing Intelligence Common Approach Guide and associated resources are now available to download.
The main Guide
is an extensive resource outlining suggested approaches to the gathering and managing of data, broken down across 14 categories from data collection methods to analysis, reporting and pulication. The guide contains examples and case studies drawing on previous initiatives.
section of the Common Approach allows you to work through a series of forms and checklists in order to check your TSIs current situation in relation to the data it holds. The Review will provide a discussion point for members of staff involved in Milo, and will allow you to see at a glance what steps need to be carried out and what has already been done.
The Mapping to Milo
spreadsheet is used along with the Review section in order to map exactly what data you currently hold across your different data sources (eg membership database, vBay), whatr data you need to gather to meet the Milo Core Minimum fields, and what additional data, if any, you would like to gather.
(a version of this sheet pre-filled with the standard vBay fields will be available once Sopra has completed vBay mapping)
The Common Approach Guide Additional Materials
is a series of appendices referred to in the Guide and Review.
