1. Introduction

This Strategy, presented in the form of a strategic framework, updates the Strategy approved by the TI-UK Board in 2014. The updated strategy is not time limited, but outlines an overall strategic direction and a framework that will allow TI-UK to respond to changes in the external environment, which may be extensive over the next few years. It is envisaged that the Board will re-visit, and if necessary refresh, the strategy in 2020. Meanwhile, it is likely that each of the four programme areas might update their own area of the strategy in consultation with the relevant Board committee, starting with the Business Integrity Programme within the first year.

Summary: Six Key Themes in this Strategy

  1. A changing world - the world’s small but effective anti-corruption community is needed more than ever. A flourishing Transparency International will be required to play a key role in world affairs in the coming years; we acknowledge the need and our strategy is a declaration of intent that we expect to rise to the challenge.
  2. Leveraging the UK’s global role – we will mobilise resources and expertise from the UK to help the global fight against corruption, leveraging the UK’s international role and acknowledging the UK’s role in facilitating international corruption.
  3. Innovation - in areas such as research and advocacy, fundraising and communications, we will introduce new means of collecting, analysing and disseminating information, with a new focus on using tech-driven solutions.
  4. Increasing impact - we will increase the impact of our activities; we will prioritise growth in impact over growth in staff numbers – with the exception of PHP, which we expect to increase towards the size of DSP.
  5. Organisational strength – we will build a strong and sustainable organisation, putting in place the necessary measures to manage our growth.
  6. Sustainable funding – we will aim for each programme to be self-sustaining according to its needs and up our game in fundraising and communications.
