Methodology and procedures are discussed in chapters three and four. Chapter three deals with the policy research and provides a description of those parts of the internal and external environment which impacted on the study. Chapter four examines the environment after the application of change strategies and describes the evaluation research. The empirical findings from the policy research appear in chapter five. A summary of the results and conclusions are presented in chapter six. (RC)
