Research is vital for increasing the Company’s organizational learning, and enhancing its efficiency and effectiveness of work, hence research, policy analysis and documentation provides both doer and support role.
In the doer role, knowledge management undertakes regular and targeted research and policy analysis, and documents these into research reports and other organizational outputs, e.g., newsletters (for internal and external sharing). The latter sharing is with the clients, partners, and wider public. The research findings are meant to enhance policy decisions. The promotion of positive cultural and religious practices and values has gained increasing prominence in the recent past and TAABCO has been at the forefront in this new drive toward reviving the use of good indigenous knowledge which is almost getting lost. This knowledge has proved vital in peace building, nutrition, medicine etc.
