the asset delivers benefit

Some different approaches to how this guide could help with benefit generation, that were brainstormed at the SPRUCE booksprint:

6. A

  • framework (things you might want to think about, or ways you might want to approach analysing benefits)
    • brief intro to alternatives: KRDS or Tanner's Balanced Value Impact Model or NG's Benefit Funnel
    • also extract common themes which appear in the different frameworks:
      • who benefits (individual or organisation)
      • timescales (short-term / long-term)
      • etc.

6. B

  • example benefits
    • by scenario to allow people the benefits which could be expressed in different contexts and shared areas of concern
      • e.g.1 Research data: KRDS
      • e.g.2 Institutional or personal archives: examples from SPRUCE Mashup events
    • by type to allow people to identify common themes from the different frameworks and approaches
      • e.g.1 organisational concerns - green issues, efficiency, compliance, reputation, etc.
      • e.g.2 users - access, reuse, funding opportunities, outreach, etc.
      • e.g.3 financial - generating income, making savings, ROI
