The TEM analysis team use a data-driven approach to analysis. Our baseline structure for our analysis is based on our data to decisions pyramid, which is a variation of the popular data to wisdom model used in science. TEM will take raw data and add meaning to turn into useable information. Analysts then use their experience to include context to assist the decision making process.
All work undertaken by the TEM analysis team is conducted independently. In order to maintain this independence, the following will apply:
TEM analysts will maintain consistent and uncompromising adherence to holding strong ethical principles when producing analytical content. TEM analysts will present work that is their own, with acknowledgement of the work of others when required. Where TEM analysts work with outside consultants, this will be clearly outlined, and any work by a third party credited.
In order to provide full transparency, all TEM analysts will outline any potential conflicts in any analysis produced.
These conflicts include, but are not limited to:
The TEM ethical decision tool assists the analysis team in determining whether the actions we take are with a high degree of integrity.
If the answer to these questions is yes, then its acceptable to proceed. If the answer is no to any of these questions, then do not proceed. If unsure, err on the side of caution and discuss further within the team.
