Our Business Philosophy

This is guided by the constant need to take a 360-degree view of pertinent issues and perspectives on governance and public policy through executive training, research and advisory services.

The Ibadan School of Government and Public Policy (ISGPP) is an independent think tank devoted to research and training on issues of public policy in Africa for transforming public bureaucracies and political arrangements to make public policy work better than they currently do for inclusive development and democracy in Africa. We believe that our strength comes from strategic investment in people, technology and research and this uncompromising business model explains the reason for our continued success in our areas of endeavours.

The ISGPP is an agent of change that enhances the capacity of beneficiaries of its programmes to discover and apply creative solutions to a range of complex public policy, governance, democracy and development problems through deep reflective thinking. As an independent think tank, the ISGPP is run by a management team of experts, representing a critical mass of intellectual, scholars, scientists, professional and industrialist under the guidance provided by an international governing board responsible for the overall policies and direction of development of the school.

ISGPP has been involved in gathering and analysing evidence broadly on how public sector reform happens across some African countries and the roles that research evidence, learning and adaptation play in those reform processes in order to strengthen the evidence base on the pragmatics of public policy reforms in Africa and also that such research evidence becomes available and are used to make informed policy decisions and practices which will bring about sustained improvements in livelihood outcomes for Africans.
