Any tips for speeding up data gathering please?

"This step does tend to take a lot of time, if you have existing data that is reliable to use then it will speed things up. If collecting new data, create a data collection plan; be very clear what you need and why, make sure you have defined the sample size as this will prevent gathering more than you need. Think how you will collect the data, can several people be involved? if so make sure there is a comparable standard of measuring and collecting (gauge studies)and keep checking to ensure they are doing so correctly"
