VISION (DRAFT)

Strategic Services is a concept that exists since the age when the humankind has started to develop an order. The early examples of this field were observed mostly in the military consultancy and policy consultancy services as it was provided individually. Throughout the history, these Strategic Services was continued to be offered between institutions and countries as well as among the individuals in different fields.

The content of Strategic Services began to develop in the 16th century, as the dam construction, engineering and contracting services which were considered as the advanced technology of the period, was provided by China to its’ neighboring countries. The East India Company which was established at the beginning of the 17th century, through its services on transportation, which is one of the critical sectors for every country and business; it has become a part of the private sector through privatizing this sector, which was previously run and managed through governments and businessmen, as well as provided ground towards forming the foundations of today's cargo and transportation market. As time goes on, the concept of Strategic Services continued to expand and develop through the emergence of new commercial, military, financial, social concepts.

Strategic Services which was defined firstly as a sector which provides services to the public via private entrepreneurship companies, started to expand its field of activity in line with the changing dynamics of the world in 19th century. In the 20th century, these services began to be rendered to the private sector as a result of new formations that emerge in many fields such as finance, international trade, management etc. It was clear that these professional services were needed by the public and private sectors after the Great Depression and has increased importance of this sector globally. The globalization of the sector has extended the historical definition of the Strategic Services through the emergence of new order and technological developments.

Currently, the strategic consultancy has become a sector which affects the strategies and policies of both public and private institutions, and it also affects the development of economy and humankind. Today, volume of service exports exceeded volume of product exports in a few developed countries. Even though there are many reasons for this situation, one of the most effective reasons is the rapid development of technology. Upon the rapid development in technology, many disciplines such as economic, industrial, administrative etc. are changing accordingly, the private sector institutions and especially public institutions have difficulty in adapting to this change and the demand for strategic services increases rapidly.

BRAINS2 TÜRKİYE Strategic Services Program will analyze which Strategic Services fields would provide highest potential for future growth and which benefits can be gained from this growth by the Turkish Strategic Services sector, through considering Turkey's available strength and potential both in academic and industrial sectors.
