Research priority-setting in OB/Management?

    Dear Colleagues,

    In my field of health services research, it is common to bring diverse stakeholders together to discuss and rank research directions. These research priority-setting exercises (also called "research co-design") are often specific to a disease or patient population. I executed a similar research priority-setting exercise, but my focus was not clinical care and the patient experience, but rather management and accountability mechanisms in health systems.

    I am curious the extent to which end users have been engaged in research priority-setting in the OB/management field. Your general reflections on this question and any relevant papers you could point me to would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you!
