    Data collector is a very important aspect to consider, I have seen a well prepared data collection tool not bringing the intended results just because of the level of education (understanding) of data collectors.
    Nice pointers

    I think you what you have mentioned covers the whole process and not just data collection as the original post mentioned. Nevertheless I agree that it is important to have the full picture of how the process will be when developing data collection tools.
