Research Integrity in the Private Sector

Sustineo’s Business Development and Research Manager, Tom Sloan, recently delivered a guest lecture to the ‘Qualitative Research Methods’ course at the Australian National University. This lecture followed Tom’s engagement in the course in 2015.

Tom focused on the importance of maintaining research integrity beyond academia. He highlighted the work that Sustineo does in applying academically rigorous standards of work in ways practical and relevant for project partners. Tom emphasised the importance of understanding the specific issue that the client is interested in and selecting an appropriate methodology, including data collection tools and analytical frameworks for investigating it. The lecture was well received by undergraduate and postgraduate students in the class and has led to a number of follow up enquires!
