Transnational NGO Initiative presents: Barney Tallack - INGOs Are Changing Their Organizational Forms: Why & How?

Barney Tallack, Ex-Oxfam International Director for Strategy & INGO Consultant

Many well-known transnational NGOs are undergoing major transformations. These shifts are in response to geopolitical changes, new theories on how impact can be achieved, and changes in the role of governments, the for profit sector, and civil society organizations. These changes are especially profound in low and middle income countries and greatly affect the funding landscape – the “why” of the changes. The organizational transformations – often taking up to a decade – are challenging, and differ in many important aspects when compared to organizations in other sectors – the “how” of the changes.

Barney Tallack worked on international development, humanitarian, and advocacy issues for 25 years. Most recently, Mr. Tallack served as Director of Strategy for Oxfam International. There, he oversaw the strategy behind a major organizational change process in Oxfam, Oxfam 2020. Mr. Tallack has also been a Board member of various not for profit and social enterprise organizations, ranging from International Health Exchange, to the Fairtrade Foundation and the Forest Peoples’ Programme.
