KENYA: EVERY COUNTY NEEDS A SWOT-PROPELLED STRATEGIC PLAN.

KENYA: EVERY COUNTY NEEDS A SWOT-PROPELLED STRATEGIC PLAN.

MARCH 4, 2013 in earnest put in place Kenya’s devolution when county governors were elected to run affairs of the counties. Indeed some counties had already put in place “strategic frameworks” designed to guide county priorities. My casual observations reveal that around the country, citizens in a number of counties are demanding from their county officials to deliver ASAP.

Let us agree - the market conditions that counties are facing as they embark on their development paths have been and are in a constant state of flux which forces governors and their teams to come up with relevant and appropriate projects to lay the foundations of their county development pillars.

IMPACT STUDY METHODOLOGIES

Social science research topics on impact, effect and influence are not uncommon among masters and PhD students. I may have no statistics to prove this assertion globally but I can assertively say that it is the case in my own university €“ the Jomo Kenyatta university of Agriculture and Technology in Kenya. Topics phrased as, €œThe impact of €¦ on €¦€ €œThe effects of €¦. On €¦€€The influence of €¦€ have become increasingly popular.

This has brought to the fore a debate on methodological issues surrounding impact study related topics of research.

I want to contribute to this debate by addressing the what, why, when and how of a typical impact study.
