Our methodology

Study of the scheme details:

i. Meeting the core implementation team either through a physical/virtual meeting to crystallise the requirements of the study,
ii. Study of the objectives, strategy, the physical and financial progress, implementation system, processes, and the outcome expected of the scheme/policy
iii. Study of implementation of similar schemes in other places to enable cross-learning

Finalising the research methodology

i. Sampling techniques – size and selection methods
ii. Preparing field survey formats to reflect the objectives of the study
iii. Administering the survey and listing out persons for in-depth interviews

Data structure and IT system

i. Defining the data about the scheme and calling the required data fields from the indenting entity. This data will be analysed for adequacy and consistency.
ii. Designing IT tools including mobile apps that capture data from the field
iii. Analysing the data captured from the field for robustness, completeness, consistency, and accuracy.
iv. Comparing data with the secondary data for validation.

Field work and verification of the status on the field

i. All members of CRISP visit the field and interact with stakeholders. CRISP members stay in the field to gain an in-depth understanding of the field and find ways to improve the same.
ii. Surveys will be administered by field level researchers under the guidance of the CRISP team, ensuring unbiased surveys.
iii. Insights are taken from stakeholder interactions which leads to better implementation systems.

Report writing

i. The entire team of CRISP will examine the evidence and discuss the scope for improvement
ii. These suggestions will be further field-tested on a random basis to ensure that they are practical and can be implemented
iii. The results will be shared with the indenting entity in exit meeting to get feedback
iv. The report will be finalised and presented
v. The report will be published in reputed academic journals and other places for wider dissemination.
