Data Collection

Course ID DCASQ
Format Web-based

Far too often, organizations lack formal data collection, or worse, create and implement complicated data collection efforts without understanding whether the data and metrics link to the organization's strategic goals and objectives. This lack of structure often results in collected data and metrics that have little value. To ensure that you focus and structure your data collection efforts accordingly, use data collection plans and data collection techniques to collect relevant process data.


Gain an understanding of the critical elements that are part of an accurate and complete data collection plan. Learn how to collect relevant process data using data collection techniques like automatic data capture, surveys, interviews, check sheets, and checklists. Interactive activities and knowledge checks in this course enable you to apply what you've learned.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
