Scenario Descriptions for the Data Collection Scavenger Hunt:
Scenario 1: You are a quality control team tasked with assessing product defects. Your goal is to collect data on the number of defective units produced in the past month, categorizing them by type of defect (e.g., manufacturing, design, packaging). Take photographs of the defects and record any relevant observations.
Scenario 2: As part of a customer satisfaction analysis, your team needs to gather data on customer feedback. Visit the company’s customer service center and collect information on the number of customer complaints received in the last week. Additionally, document the nature of the complaints and any common patterns identified.
Scenario 3: Your team is responsible for analyzing employee engagement levels. Collect data on employee satisfaction by conducting anonymous surveys. Ask employees to rate their level of satisfaction on a scale of 1 to 5, and include open-ended questions to gather qualitative feedback on areas for improvement.
Scenario 4: To assess process efficiency, your team must collect data on production cycle times. Visit the production floor and record the time taken for each step of the process. Identify any bottlenecks or delays and document them with timestamped notes or photographs.
Scenario 5: As part of a market research project, your team needs to gather data on competitor pricing. Visit various retail stores or websites and record the prices of similar products offered by competitors. Document any promotions or discounts available.
These scenario descriptions provide specific data requirements that participants need to collect during the scavenger hunt. Adjust the scenarios according to the specific focus or industry of your course, ensuring they align with the learning objectives and provide opportunities for participants to practice effective data collection techniques.
