IEEE Strategic Research & Planning provides research services to the entire IEEE. Typical research projects examine the needs and opinions of specific groups, assess satisfaction levels, investigate new ideas, evaluate outcomes, or measure the effectiveness of products and services.
The IEEE Strategic Research Annual Report 2011 (PDF 696,KB) summarizes research findings from 56 IEEE Strategic Research and Planning studies completed in 2011. The IEEE studies examined membership, membership trends, and the differences among membership groups such as current, former, and prospective members; IEEE employees were also studied. Specific subgroups investigated include Society members, members of local sections, attendees of various meetings and events, and others. Study topics range from prioritizing IEEE activities in Africa to assessing CrossCheck usage to an evaluation of the Total Rewards program.
