Decisions, decisions: we make them all day long. But what fuels our decision-making? Research!
Every association executive uses research to make decisions, and often we’re responsible for conducting – or at least sponsoring – original research.
How can we ensure that the research we’re using or creating is good quality, able to support evidence-based decisions that produce good outcomes?
That’s the question that drove my and Polly Karpowicz’s recent conversation with Cecilia Sepp for the Radio Free 501c podcast, where we discussed our whitepaper Caveat Emptor: Becoming a Responsible Consumer of Research.
The conversation touched on what everyone should know about research, how we can educate ourselves to make the best choices, and how most of us learn it on the job. (We also talked about our gardens!) Listen to this fun and wide ranging episode.
