How We Work

We're Building Great Institutions

A leading global holding company with four distinct strategic business units, Development II provides intelligent information to the world’s decision makers—connecting them to ideas, people, organizations and resources that enable them to dominate their industries.

Development II, Inc. (DII) was founded in 1989 as a business consulting, market research and product development firm, focusing on technologies that measure customer satisfaction and business processes. We quickly evolved into a global advisor, working with market-leading clients across the world, including companies in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Singapore and Japan.

Our Company’s Mission

The goal with every client transaction is to professionally, quickly and accurately deliver results that are actionable, repeatable and enduring—while not limited by industries and geographies.

Four Distinct Strategic Business Units

That ability to approach every client’s business as if it were our own led to the development of four distinct business units within Development II, Inc:

DII Research

Business and market intelligence tools and products that give decision makers an edge. We bring together a network of proprietary, well analyzed, reliable, and timely information and ideas.

DII Labs

The business incubator unit of Development II, through which we create and operate successful global companies.
