Description: The organizers asked me to share with you my experiences in developing and implementing a process for establishing and agreeing on research priorities in a multi-stakeholder research institute such as Forintek. The mechanism we have in place has been well received by Forintek's membership and certain aspects have been adopted by other research organizations. While we are pleased with developments to date and the strong commitment of employees, priority setting has been, and will continue to be, an evolutionary and iterative process with opportunity for future improvement. Also, our approach may not be appropriate for other organizations because of differences in mission, governance, and client base. For these reasons I have decided to take an anecdotal rather than a prescriptive approach in this presentation.

Keywords: benchmarking, forest research, international forestry, leadership
