Abstract: This booklet documents and analyses current SNV advisory practices in the field of private sector development (PSD) in five countries of the SNV East and Southern Africa region: Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. Building Advisory Practice (BAP) is an initiative by the SNV country programmes in East Africa to examine the ways SNV assists its clients to become stronger institutions and better at reaching their goals and objectives. The context for this initiative is first of all SNV’s desire to strengthen its current advisory approach; at the same time, SNV aims to strengthen itself as a learning organization. These shifts in aim mean that the focus also must shift—to examine the quality of the advisory service itself. The objectives of BAP are these: (1) to provide a definition of best practices for approaches, methods and processes for SNV’s advisory services in East Africa; (2) to harmonize and adapt improved approaches, methods and processes of SNV’s advisory practice in the region, through innovation as well as adaptation of approaches learned from external partners; (3) to work towards aligning visions on how to strengthen the advisory practice of SNV; and (4) to foster an appreciation in the wider public of the value of SNV’s approaches.
