The purpose of this paper is to examine antecedent factors that contribute to strategy processes in technology transfer offices (TTOs) and underpin the formulation of strategy. Set in an Irish context using multiple cases, we find that TTOs have taken different responses to the same environmental stimuli, conducted different forms of benchmarking and undertook different professional development and agenda setting activities. Given the paucity of research on strategy dimensions of TTOs, we conclude our chapter by outlining some future avenues of research.
