Report of the external management review of IRRI conducted in 1987, concurrently with an external program review, by a panel chaired by Lowell S. Hardin. The document contains transmittals from the CGIAR Executive Secretary and from the panel chair, and the response of the IRRI Board. The panel found that although IRRI had been very successful as a research institution, it exhibited a number of management problems, some of which had long histories. Recommendations focused on strategic planning and the need for clearly defined objectives and priorities, rethinking organizational structure in the light of the strategy, creating and maintaining an environment conducive to innovation and creativity, improved management of human resources, and information management.The report was considered at TAC 43 in June 1987, and TAC 48 in March 1989. It was an agenda document at the CGIAR meetings in October 1987 and October-November 1989.
