RIRDC is developing a new Corporate Strategy with completion scheduled for late 2011. A number of studies have been undertaken to assist in development of corporate strategy. Major studies have included the Industry Overview (2009) prepared by ABARE and the Review of the ‘ New Rural Industries’ R&D Portfolio (2009) Prepared by L.E.K. Consulting.

This project is to build on these studies to make recommendations, and to facilitate discussions, on the design and implementation of a more efficient and effective RIRDC New Animal (and Fibre) R,D &E Program (NAP).

The goal of this project (as for the LEK study) is: RIRDC’s strategies and approaches to deliver the greatest impact and benefit for stakeholders

This will be achieved through taking the results of recent reviews, policy documentation, industry data and market data, and bringing them together with information from program and project plans and results delivered, and budget allocations, and drawing up options and recommendations for discussion with RIRDC staff to draw out final recommendations.
