Respect is one of the four key Lean Research principles.
Respectful research places the dignity and delight of the human subject at the center of the research experience. It offers a clear, intelligible informed consent process, in which research subjects feel truly free to reject participation without fearing negative consequences. If they decide to participate, subjects find the experience enjoyable and meaningful. Subjects have the opportunity to review and refute research findings and feel that their contributions to the research have been appropriately valued.
