Take part: Survey on Leading Co-Production

Do you have experience of co-production in partnership with a university? If so, we'd like to hear more about your notions of good leadership.

Who leads, for what purpose and how? The question of leadership in coproduction is often assumed or ignored. Jam and Justice researchers want to understand where people with experience of co-production agree and differ on what constitutes good leadership. To help us study this effectively, we've prepared a survey intended for those who have been part of co-production projects involving a university partner.

About the survey
Participants are asked to read and sort a series of 42 statements according to how well they describe your view of good leadership for co-production. Respondents also have a chance to write briefly about the statements they feel most strongly about (agreement and disagreement). This approach allows us to get a detailed understanding of your preferences for leadership in co-production, and means we can systematically compare viewpoints.

What else do participants need to know?
The process takes about 30 minutes. In addition to sorting statements, respondents are asked a couple of questions about their role and experience. It is a self-administered online survey and works best on a PC or laptop.

Participation is voluntary, and you can withdraw consent at any point during the research project (ends July 2019).

What happens with the survey data?
As with all our research, data will be collected, stored, managed and archived in line with the Research Council UK’s Common Principles on Data Policy and the ESRC Research Data Policy. Personal information about respondents will not be divulged to any third party without the consent of the participant concerned. De-identified data will be made freely available to the scientific community after completion of the project via the UK Data Service (https://www.ukdataservice.ac.uk) for future research and learning.
