We supported the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN) to begin developing its organisational strategy. This involved a desk-based review of documentation and the development of a draft strategy and one year plan for consideration and further development by UKRN.

Strategy development for the UK Reproducibility Network

Research Consulting supported the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN) to begin developing a new strategy for their organisation. This work involved initial engagement with UKRN to understand the desired vision and mission of the organisation and to understand the key activities and actors involved in the network.

UKRN provided us with various documents, including meeting minutes, workshop notes and role descriptions, which we reviewed and thematically organised as the basis for our strategy development. Drawing on our conversations with UKRN, and a review of the available documents, we drafted vision and mission statements for UKRN which were then reviewed and revised.

Based on the draft vision and mission statements, we then proposed three strategy pillars for UKRN, preparing short descriptions of each pillar. This was complemented by a one-year plan that we drafted for UKRN’s consideration. The draft one-year plan proposed several activities and tasks, organised by strategy pillar, for UKRN to consider and prioritise.

The draft strategy and one-year plan were shared with UKRN. Our work will support the organisation to finalise its strategy and one year plan following a consultation with UKRN members and further review by UKRN.
