dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to investigate policy design and implementation process at Kenyatta University. Policy design determines the success and failure of the policy implementation process. Consequently, effective policy design and successful implementation are among the factors that contribute to success in organizations. Research on policy design and implementation has shown that the probability of a successful policy outcome will be increased if, at the stage of policy design, thought is given to the potential problems of implementation. Among the objectives, the study seeks to: investigate policy design and implementation process at Kenyatta University; establish whether Kenyatta University Policies are in line with the accepted standards of policy making; and examine the impact of effective policy design and implementation process to institutional building at Kenyatta University. The study will adopt a case study design and will be purely qualitative. Both primary and secondary data will be used for the study. Primary data will be collected through in-depth interviews using a semi structured interview schedule, focus group discussions, evaluation of records used during the process of policy design and documentary analysis of selected policy documents. Secondary data will be obtained through library research. Data analysis will involve transcription of raw data from in-depth interviews, focus group discussions and notes from evaluation of records and documentary analysis. Typed and transcribed data will then be categorized into distinct themes. The themes will then be coded systematically after which linkages and relationships among them will be established. Data presentation will be through the interpretative model. The final data will then be used to summarize and draw conclusions on the research findingsen_US
