REPORT ON SURVEY METHODOLOGY AND INTERVIEWS WITH RBINS TECHNICAL STAFF OF THE COLLECTIONS SERVICE Date Deceber 11, 2014 Wor pacage WP4 Tas 4.1 Carry out staehoder aaysis for copetecy fraewor ad traiig + aayse socioogica ad cutura ipicatios of trasfer Parter NHM & RBINS Reporter Isabea Va de Vede 1 TABLE OF CONTENTS INTRODUCTION... 3 METHODOLOGY... 3 RESULTS... 6 CONCLUSION RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE INTERVIEWING AT THE EUCOLCOMP PARTNER INSTITUTIONS INTRODUCTION The Coectios Copetecy Fraewor was deveoped for oe istitutio (NHM) i oe coutry (UK). Research is eeded to coect iforatio o istitutioa ad staff attitude, thoughts ad ideas about the use of the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor i other istitutios ad coutries. I order to assess cutura ad socioogica factors affectig the tae up of the Copetecy Fraewor a series of iterviews wi be hed at parter istitutios. The ethodoogy ad the ai toos for assesset ad testig were defied. The ai of the preset docuet is to report: - o the ethodoogy used to gather iforatio o staff view o the use of the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor, - o the iterviews hed with the techica staff of RBINS, which was chose as a test case, - ad to provide recoedatios for the forthcoig iterviews i the seected EUCoCop parter istitutios of the proect as outied i the descriptio of wor, ad this i order to aayse ad uderstad the cutura ad socioogica barriers i usig the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor by staehoders ad to iprove the Fraewor to becoe uiversa to be used i a other useus. METHODOLOGY A face-to-face eetig (May 2014), a Sype eetig (August 2014) were hed ad exchage by eaiig was doe to discuss ad defie the ethodoogy ad toos for evauatig the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor. It was decided to use a oie survey ad iterviews for aaysig ad evauatig the cutura ad socioogica ipicatios of the trasfer of the Copetecy Fraewor to other istitutios/coutries. It was aso decided that before doig the piot testig i the seected parter istitutios, RBINS woud act as a test case for testig the deveoped assesset toos ad worfow of the iterview. Frech or Dutch is the other togue of the RBINS staff. Hece, the Copetecy Fraewor ad the iterview ateria were trasated fro Egish ito Dutch ad Frech. Seior staff iterview was doe i Egish ad oderator was the EUCoCop proect aager (NHM); for techica staff the iterviews were hed i the other togue of the iterviewees ad ead by a RBINS staff eber fro the EUCoCop proect. DESIGN OF THE RBINS TEST CASE THE COMPETENCY FRAMEWORK The adapted Copetecy Fraewor, origiay i Egish, has bee trasated ito Frech ad Dutch ad was distributed i RBINS to the seior staff (coservators) ad techica staff 3 (curators) of the Coectios Service, ad to the Hua Resources service i the 3 aguages (Septeber October 2014). THE ONLINE SURVEY After the Copetecy Fraewor was distributed to the staff i RBINS, a questioaire to coect iforatio o staff view ad thoughts about the Copetecy Fraewor was put oie. The survey was distributed i Egish, Frech ad Dutch via Survey oey (October 2014). The survey cotaied 3 sectios (about your ob, the copetecies, about you) ad soe of the questios were for aagers oy. Questios ased were: Sectio A About your ob Approxiatey what percetage of your ob over 1 year is aocated to each of the areas isted beow? What are your ai speciaiss? How og have you bee doig this ob? Sectio B About the Copetecies For aagers ad techica staff: How we do these copetecies atch your ob? Pease give exapes of soe that do t reate ad soe that do? How woud you fee if you were expected to defie your ob usig such a fraewor or parts of it? How we do each of the words/phrases appy to copetecies? Copetecies are used every day i the NHM Lodo by coectio staff ad their aagers. Wi they wor i your istitutio/roe? If ot, pease suggest why ot. For aagers oy: How usefu woud these copetecies hep you aage ad deveop your staff? Pease te us two ways i which you ight use the copetecies as a aager. Sectio C About you What is your ae? What is your geder? What is your ob tite? What stage are you at i your career? What quaificatios have you got? Give a axiu of three exapes of obs that you did before this oe. Do you have ay other coets, questios, or cocers? The survey i Egish, Dutch ad Frech ca be foud i the aex of this report. 4 THE INTERVIEWS The iterviewees were recruited o a voutary basis. Audio recordig was used to record their iput. Aoyity of the iterviewees is respected. Iterviews were doe i Egish, Frech ad Dutch depedig o the audiece. Each iterview started with a brief itroductio to the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor ad its cotext (see ppt i aex of this report). The questios of the iterview were proected o a scree. The foowig iterviews were coducted at RBINS. - 1 focus group iterview with seior staff i Egish (4 peope - 3 hours icudig itroductio) 7 Noveber focus group iterview with techica staff i Dutch (2 peope 1 hour icudig itroductio) 25 Noveber focus group iterview with techica staff i Frech (4 peope 1 hour icudig itroductio) 2 Deceber idividua iterview with techica staff (1 hour icudig itroductio) 25 Noveber & 4 Deceber 2014 Tota uber of iterviewees ivoved: 12 (7 woe/5 e). Focus group iterview are differet fro the typica iterviews as havig ot the aterate questio-aswer sequece. I focus group iterviews iteractio is iportat to coect data that woud otherwise reai hidde. Iteractio is based o a series of discussio topics ad participats are ecouraged to ta to oe aother, exchage ad coet o oe aother s experieces ad poits of view. THE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS The iterview questios were desiged to gather iforatio o staff view o the Copetecy Fraewor ad to see if there are ay barriers i usig the fraewor. I additio soe bacgroud iforatio was gathered o the istitutio s attitude towards progressio, staff deveopet, ad persoa abitios. The questios ased i the iterview were: User s (RBINS) owedge of the bacgroud of the fraewor: what do they ow about the Copetecy Fraewor? What do you ow of the bacgroud of the Copetecy Fraewor? Why was the fraewor desiged ad what does it hope to achieve? User s (RBINS) attitude towards progressio, staff deveopet, persoa abitios: what is the situatio i RBINS? Does prootio atter? What ways ca you progress i your ob? 5 What do you thi shoud be the criteria for soeoe i RBINS to get prooted? User s (RBINS) expectatios of such a Copetecy Fraewor: what do you expect fro such a fraewor? For what part(s) of your wor do you expect to use the fraewor? Pease give exapes. Do you expect the fraewor wi ifuece the wor you do? Woud usig the fraewor chage your wor routie? Usage of fraewor: why woud RBINS use it or ot use it? Why woud you use the fraewor? Ca you give soe ideas of how it woud wor i RBINS? Why woud you ot use the fraewor? Ca you give soe ideas of why it ight ot wor i RBINS? Recoedatios/suggestios for the fraewor: how to iprove the fraewor? Is there aythig issig fro the fraewor? Do you have ay recoedatios to iprove the fraewor? What do you wat ideay the fraewor to oo ie? Your thoughts/opiio What are the ais of coectios care ad aageet? Are there ay boudaries betwee research ad coectios aageet? How iportat is coectios reated traiig? Sides of the questios i Egish, Frech ad Dutch, used i the iterview, ca be foud i the aex of this report. RESULTS The preset report deas with the resuts of the iterviews hed with the techica staff of RBINS. Reportig o the feedbac of the iterviews doe with the seior staff ad Hua Resources wi be give i separate reports. Aso the feedbac received fro the oie survey wi be reported separatey. DESIGN OF THE ONLINE SURVEY I order to get iforatio o staff view o the Copetecy Fraewor the Egish versio of the survey was first distributed to the seior staff of RBINS: https://www.surveyoey.co/s/survey_staff_view_copetecies However, difficuties were et as aagers had to fi out the survey usig the Copetecy Fraewor for aagig their staff ad as aager usig the Copetecy Fraewor for their ow persoa deveopet. Apparety this was eadig to difficuties i fiig out the 6 survey as oe got the ipressio fiig out the sae questios twice. Hece the questioaire was adapted ad apparety copetig the survey wet ore soothy: https://www.surveyoey.co/s/survey_copetecies_staff_view-en Aso a idicatio of the uber of survey questios was added i the survey itroductio. The survey was trasated i Dutch ad Frech to be distributed to the techica staff: https://.surveyoey.co/s/equete_eig_staf_copeteties https://fr.surveyoey.co/s/sodage_avis_persoe_copeteces Resuts of the oie survey wi be discussed i a separate report. THE INTERVIEWS The resuts preseted i this docuet are iterviewees opiio, thoughts, ad expectatios of the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor. Their feedbac wi be used to iprove the Copetecy Fraewor to becoe uiversa to be used i a other usea. The report suarises techica staff feedbac o the foowig issues: - their owedge about the Copetecy Fraewor; - their attitude towards prootio, persoa deveopet, abitios; - their expectatios of the Copetecy Fraewor; - usage of the Copetecy Fraewor; - recoedatios for iprovig the Copetecy Fraewor; - their opiio o research ad coectios aageet. For each questio topic a suary is give of the aswers coected. A feedbac has bee recorded ad detaied aswers are archived. User s (RBINS) owedge of the bacgroud of the fraewor: what do they ow about the Copetecy Fraewor. A iterviewees were ot aware of the NHM Coectios Copetecy Fraewor uti the Copetecy Fraewor was distributed i RBINS i view of the survey ad iterviews to be doe. They are aware of copetecies but this i reatio to deveopet circes used for the evauatio of staff perforace. User s (RBINS) attitude towards progressio, staff deveopet, persoa abitios: what is the situatio i RBINS? Does prootio atter? Various aswers were received. For soe of the peope prootio is iportat as they are doig aso tass that are oray doe by soeoe who has a higher eve. They are otivated to get prootio to a higher ra. Possibiity to evove ust exist. For others prootio is iportat but it is ot their obective. Ad soe fid prootio ot iportat. At RBINS the possibiity for prootio exists for those havig a peraet cotract ad it is orgaised by the goveret but the process taes a very og tie. What ways ca you progress i your ob? 7 Most iterviewees fid traiig a way to progress i their ob. They wat to broade their horizo by earig. Soe of the wat to do other tass they fid iterestig ad they are eager to foow traiig to have the ecessary owedge to perfor i that doai. A iority says that they caot progress i their ob. What do you thi shoud be the criteria for soeoe i RBINS to get prooted? Severa criteria were etioed such as: perso s owedge, the desire to evove, evauatio of the wor doe, doig tests, capabiity to decide o tas priority, otivatio of the perso, the desire to foow traiig, the wish to do ore tha ust the tass isted i the ob descriptio, eageress to have ore resposibiity, opeess to iteract with others. User s (RBINS) expectatios of such a Copetecy Fraewor: what do you expect fro such a fraewor? For what part(s) of your wor do you expect to use the fraewor? Pease give exapes. The foowig aswers were coected. The fraewor shows us a existig copetecies ad so we ca see if we coud acquire ew copetecies. With the fraewor we ca iprove. The fraewor is reay a ecopassig; I ca fid a the tass I a doig i this fraewor. The fraewor is a too to fid tass that we coud do i future ad that we were ot aware of. Do you expect the fraewor wi ifuece the wor you do? Soe of the iterviewees respoded that the fraewor woud ot ifuece their wor. Oe perso said that it wi ot ifuece the wor uess the fraewor is used by the aager to defie other tass tha those they are doig ow. Others say that it wi ifuece the wor they are doig because whe they wi have the opportuity to foow traiig to iprove their sis ad owedge ad they wi the have the ecessary copetecies to do better their ob. Woud usig the fraewor chage your wor routie? Soe of the iterviewees say that it wi ot chage their wor routie; others gave a positive repy as with the fraewor they wi discover other tass they were ot aware of. Usig the fraewor coud ope ew possibiities. Usage of fraewor: why woud RBINS use it or ot use it? Why woud you use the fraewor? Ca you give soe ideas of how it woud wor i RBINS? The foowig aswers were coected. The fraewor is a too that ca be used for prootio. It ca be used for sharig owedge. It coud be used to defie traiig but the istitute shoud have the ecessary budget for attedig the courses. It ca be used for persoa deveopet but aso for tea deveopet. The fraewor coud perfecty wor i our istitute despite the overap of copetecies defied i the eves A & B. The fraewor provides accurate iforatio o the ob you are doig. Why woud you ot use the fraewor? Ca you give soe ideas of why it ight ot wor i RBINS? 8 Most of the iterviewees wat to use the fraewor ad see o reaso for ot usig it. Perhaps ac of budget eeded for traiig opportuities coud be a probe. Recoedatios/ suggestios for the fraewor: how to iprove the fraewor? Is there aythig issig fro the fraewor? Most of the iterviewees are of the opiio that the fraewor is reay ecopassig a copetecies eeded for coectios care ad aageet. There was the rear that oe shoud first use the fraewor i order to be abe to te if aythig is issig. Aother coet was that perhaps soe of the tass defied i the owest eve are too abitious. Do you have ay recoedatios to iprove the fraewor? A geera rear that was give i a iterviews is that the eves ad reated tas does ot correspod with the situatio i the istitute, especiay for eve A ad B. I these eves copetecies do overap ad the separatio betwee the eves is ot very cear. What do you wat ideay the fraewor to oo ie? No specific coets were received. Your thoughts/opiio What are the ais of coectios care ad aageet? The coectios are part of our heritage. They are eeded for research, for exhibitios for the geera pubic, for educatio. They are the basis of Taxooy. Coectios are iportat because soe of the species i our coectios have becoe extict. We have to see that the coectios are stored i a good eviroet, that they are easiy accessibe ad arraged propery so that whe species are eed for research or other purposes they are easiy foud bac i the coectio ad i a good coditio. Are there ay boudaries betwee research ad coectios aageet? Depedig o the poicy of the departet soe of the coectios techica staff is doig research ad others do t. If soeoe is otivated to do research ad if their aager agrees they ca do research i their free tie but their core busiess shoud be coectios care. Most of the iterviewees are eager to do tass reated to idetificatio of species. Few of the iterviewees (2) are ivoved i research ad the other iterviewees, except 2, wat to broade their owedge ad are eager to becoe ivoved i research. They say this ca aso becoe part of their copetecies. How iportat is coectios reated traiig? A iterviewees fid traiig very iportat. They say that it is iportat to ow how you have to tae care of the coectios you are resposibe for ad if you do ot have these sis you eed to foow traiig. Traiig is iportat because it is for the wefare of the species ad idirecty for the researchers studyig the species. Traiig is iportat to iprove owedge ad to broade oe s horizo. They fid officia courses ore iportat tha e.g. i-house traiig as the courses are of a better quaity, you get to ow other peope, other visios, other useus. Foowig a course gives you ore credibiity, you get ore recogitio. The opportuity to foow a traiig shoud be give to a 9 techicias, there shoud be o distictio. Lac of budget coud be a obstace for ot beig abe to atted a traiig. CONCLUSION A iterviewees were very positive about the Coectios Copetecy Fraewor ad for the there are o barriers to use it. They see it as too to discover copetecies they were ot aware of, to broade their owedge ad sis, to defie traiig, to be used for persoa ad tea deveopet. A geera rear was that the eves, especiay A a B, ad reated tas i the fraewor do ot correspod with the situatio i the istitute. Furtherore, copetecy based traiig is very iportat to the. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE INTERVIEWING AT THE EUCoCop PARTNER INSTITUTIONS Prerequisite before iterviewig - IMPORTANT: esure that a iterviewees have see the Copetecy Fraewor ad have goe through a copetecies before they participate Coductig the iterview - start with a brief itroductio: cotext of the iterview, bacgroud of the proect, how the Copetecy Fraewor ca be used (see aex of this report) - proect the iterview questios o a scree (see aex of this report) - arrage for soe coffee/tea for the iterviewees - provide persoa ae abes so that durig the iterview peope ow each other Duratio of the iterview - a iterview asts about 1 hour / 1 ½ hour icudig the itroductio Iterview questios - durig the iterview iterviewees are soeties providig iforatio that wi be ased i a ext questio. This caot be avoided but try to eep the discussio o trac. Recordig the iterview - idividua iterviews as we as focus group iterviews shoud be recorded (a sartphoe is very hady for this purpose) - before startig the iterview as peope if the iterview ca be recorded: expai to the peope why the iterview is beig recorded ad that cofidetiaity is assured - te the that aoyity of the participats wi be respected i the reportig - if ot recorded, iforatio wi be issed or ca be isiterpreted - If peope refuse to be recorded: do foresee soeoe to tae otes. Size ad copositio of the group 10 - tae a sa group of 4-6 peope - orgaize separate iterviews for seior staff ad for techica staff: whe the audiece is ixed techica staff (or seior staff) coud be hesitatig to give certai coets - do foresee ae tags so that peope becoe faiiar with each other (soeties they are fro differet departets ad do ot ow each other) Locatio - choose a ocatio where you have privacy so that other peope caot hear the iterview Laguage - for seior staff the iterview ca be doe i Egish but for techica staff the iterview is preferaby doe i their other togue Iterviewer (oderator) - i order ot to ipose oe's ow ifuece o the iterviewee choose a eutra perso as a oderator or soeoe fro outside the istitute for iterviewig seior staff ad for iterviewig techica staff it is best to choose soeoe ot ivoved i supervisig their wor or ot ivoved i the service - best is to do the iterview with two peope, oe oderator ad oe taig soe otes ANNEX - questios of the survey i Egish, Frech ad Dutch - itroductio to the iterview i Frech ad Dutch - questios of the iterview i Egish, Frech ad Dutch 11 EUCoCop - Survey staff view o Coectios Copetecy Fraewor EUCoCop Coectios Copetecies for Europe Thesurvey PeasecoudyouspedsoeofyourtietogiveusyourviewsadideasotheCoectiosCopetecy Fraewor(EuCoCop)whichwascircuatedtoyou.ThisiforatiowihepithedeveopetofaEuropea CopetecyFraeworforaturahistorycoectiosstaffadacurricuuoftraiigtoaddresstraiigeeds.
