THE ASTEPAS THEORY OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT FOR ORGANISATIONAL, NATIONAL AND REGIONAL POLICING

Downloads: 222 Avg Rating: 5.00 By: Prof Sunday ADEFIOYE in 2013.
The ASTEPAS Theory proposed a strategic approach to research and development based on four premises that consider the need for the research, validity of research results, sustainability of the development and documentation of the whole process. The ASTEPAS Theory is explained using the ASTEPAS model and ASTEPAS Equation. The model describes an 8-step research and development process grouped into 5 stages. The stages are pre-research, research, pre development, development and post development stages. The ASTEPAS Equation illustrates mathematical model or description of the relationship between the components of the theory and the link between research and the actual development. The theory concludes that for a research to begin or exist, specific need should be ascertained broken down into different problems; research result validated before commencement of actual development and that any development emanating from the process should be sustainable with proper documentation of the whole process. The theory is deemed to be applicable at all developmental levels - organisational, national and regional and towards improved research effectiveness and sustainable development across multiple domains.
