Sharing Value

The links below provide a two-page summary of the Sharing Value guideline, in PDF and Powerpoint format, and a link to the introductory section of the guideline.

You can also see an example of putting this guideline into practice here.


A 1.5 minute video that explains the key concepts of this guideline:

Video transcript

The following transcript explains what is happening in the animated video. The images are simplified so are not perfect illustrations or photographs. The transitions from one scene to the next flow smoothly, zooming in to focus on something specific or zooming out to reveal a wider context.

As you read the transcript, you will see the sentences that have been spoken by the narrator interspersed with the description of the video. The descriptions of the visual images and metaphors are in square brackets [] to help distinguish them from the narrator's words.

The transcript begins immediately below: 

[Text on screen: Guideline 4 Sharing value]

 Any non-personal insights or learnings developed from the use of data should be focussed on improving the wellbeing of He Tāngata.

 [The screen splits into two. On the right side is the text ‘Guideline 4 Sharing value’. On the left a pot plant appears. Hands reach into the pot plant frame, pick up the pot plant and move it to the right, moving the text out of screen.]

 Sharing knowledge is key.

 [Another set of hands reaches in from the right, receives the plant and sits it down to the right.]

 The Data Protection and Use Policy is about being transparent and respectful when collecting or using data and information about people across the social sector.

 [The left side of the frame changes to an icon of the Policy document. We zoom into the policy document, and eventually into one of the dots on the policy cover.]

 Use this guideline when working together for better quality insights and outcomes for the people.

 [A circle appears with the text, ‘Sharing value’. The petals of a flower blossom around it­.]

 Think about including others right from the beginning of any project, think widely about who to involve; service users, service providers, cultural experts and other professionals are just some of the people who can help.

 [The left side of the frame has the text, ‘Collaboration is key’. The right side of the frame pans across five people, holding the policy. Plants are depicted behind them.]

 You uphold mana by being inclusive.

 [The right-side pans to a man in a wheelchair holding a sign with the text, ‘Nothing about us, without us!’]

 Be practical and proactive in Mahitahitanga – get people to “do the doing” with you and ask them to review and feedback on your work.

 [The left side text changes from ‘Collaboration is key’ to ‘Plan and review’. The right side has a strategy plan hanging on the wall. Hands add post-it notes to the plan.]

 Make insights and learnings easy for others to understand and use. Think about how to share learnings with service users themselves.

 [The left side text changes from ‘Plan and review’ to ‘Share insights’. The right-side tracks along pot plants with labels in each pot, with the text ‘homelessness’, ‘wellbeing’ and ‘primary education’.]  

 Learn for next time: how useful was this for others?

 [The left side text changes from ‘Share insights’ to ‘Integrate learning’. On the right side there is a large pot plant in view, some leaves are green, but some have wilted. One falls off and lands on the ground and a hand gently examines one of the wilted leaves.]

 Sharing value can look different – sometimes access to non-personal data is appropriate

 [The left side text changes from ‘Integrate learning’ to ‘Respectfully share’. On the right side there is a terrarium with data seeds in it, a hand lifts the lid and the seeds float out.]

 Sometimes it's better just to share findings.

 [The data terrarium is replaced by plant growing in a terrarium, again the lid is lifted.]

 Remember to act as kaitiaki, protecting and respecting the people whose information is used.

 [The plant growing in a terrarium is replaced by an ‘unprotected’ cluster of flowers growing in a terrarium. A hand places a lid over them.]

 Check out the Policy for other guidelines, helpful resources, and tips for collecting or using peoples data

 [Two panels slide in from top and bottom and reveal the policy cover. Pages turn to reveal guidelines in the series.]

 And information across the social sector.

[The document drops down and the email address appears with the text underneath: ‘Respectful. Trusted. Transparent.’ The New Zealand Government and Social Wellbeing Agency logos appear.]
