About James Beebe

My research focuses on the development and use of intensive, team-based qualitative research, Rapid Assessment Process (RAP). RAP uses triangulation and iterative data analysis and additional data collection to develop a preliminary understanding of a situation from the insider's perspective in one or two weeks. RAP has been used by others in research on agriculture, public health, higher education, public administration, leadership, etc. in both developing and developed countries. I have been involved in RAP based research/training on community colleges in the U.S., the public sector's ability to respond to HIV/Aids in South Africa, state farms in Eastern Europe, and response of university students to HIV/Aids in Botswana. An emerging area of research has been leadership in Africa, with a focus on indigenous models of values-based leadership.
