Strategy and Operating Model Review
SRA is seeking to develop a new strategy and operating model with input from its industry and government investors, research and extension providers, industry stakeholders and other Research and Development Corporations (RDCs). Through this process, SRA will consult and seek industry support, with the Strategy and Operating Model Review designed to give SRA’s grower and miller levy payers, SRA staff, government investors, research and extension providers, industry stakeholders and RDC peers varied opportunities for input and to provide certainty about SRA’s future.
Stakeholder consultation approach
The consultation plan is published at the link below.
We will now be coming to you to discuss the new strategy and operating model, via a roadshow starting later this month. At the meetings, we will discuss SRA’s future strategy and vision and our strategic goals. We will discuss our proposed business model, plans for the approach to our research portfolio, and how we add value through variety development.
