Title: Cochrane's next strategy: Your views
General information: Over the past few months, the Governing Board and Senior Management Team have been developing a new strategic framework, which will be relevant until at least 2025. Its role is to guide the work of the whole Cochrane community over this next period. If we can align our collective efforts behind a common Mission and a sharp and insightful set of Goals and Objectives, this will enable us to work effectively together and maximize our impact. 

We’re sharing the strategic framework in draft form for consultation. As a collaborative membership organization, it is critical that this strategy is sensitive to the experiences, insights and ambitions of Cochrane’s members and key stakeholders.

We'll also be asking you some questions about your experience of Strategy to 2020 to start the process of evaluation, which will be completed next year, and to inform any changes to the new strategy.
Who is running the survey: Governance & Strategy Team, Cochrane Central Executive
Who should take the survey: All Cochrane members and supporters
