SEEK Development is a strategic and organizational consulting group dedicated to global human development and social impact. We are driven by the aspiration to strengthen the system of global development as a whole, as well as the key actors shaping it, so that they are best positioned to collectively tackle the world’s toughest problems.
SEEK works at the intersection of strategy, organizational development and leadership. We partner with leaders who have the ambition to strengthen their organizations to achieve sustainable impact.
SEEK’s portfolio of services includes strategy and policy development, organizational effectiveness and change management, leadership and governance, programmatic evaluations, and strategic advocacy. We work mainly in the fields of global health, education, development finance, global financing architecture for development, humanitarian assistance, and donor analytics.
SEEK’s international team is headquartered in Berlin, Germany, with SEEK associates spread over a number of countries and a global network of expert consultants.
We work with organizations that seek to impact global development policy and delivery. They include governments, partnerships, multilateral institutions, philanthropic foundations, civil society and the private sector.
We partner with and advise leaders who want to drive positive change. We support them from diagnosis all the way to implementation of strategies and new initiatives. We also help them maximize the impact of a wide range of existing programs – from reducing child and maternal mortality in the world’s poorest countries to optimizing company strategies for sustainable business.
Successful change processes require leaders to act across many dimensions. Therefore, we always use an integrated consulting approach: we combine rigorous fact-based analysis and strategic insight with an understanding of organizational dynamics and with the underlying conditions for systemic change. Then, we stand with the client throughout the change process, to provide practical support in managing the transformation.
In whatever we do, we set the highest professional standards for our work. Our clients’ feedback is critical; it drives our continuous quest to improve.
As a team, we have substantial programmatic and technical knowledge in the main sectors we focus on – health, education, agriculture, humanitarian assistance – as well as in cross-sectoral areas, such as development finance and donor analytics. We have strong cross-cutting functional expertise in strategy and business development, organizational effectiveness, leadership and governance, strategic advocacy, as well as monitoring and evaluation.
We possess an in-depth understanding of the politics and ‘eco-system’ of global development – its actors and dynamics, its institutional and financing architecture, the current ‘big questions’ and debates.
Our team has long-standing expertise in the development sector. Between them, they have decades-worth of experience in facilitating and managing complex multi-stakeholder dialogues, partnership building, and organizational change processes. Through our global network, SEEK has access to a wide range of additional expertise and solutions for the challenges our clients face.
