It identified the (1) profile of the external and internal environments, (2) vision of DBTC), and (3) general directions of DBTC in attaining its vision. The developmental design facilitated the use of processes in drawing up some relevant profiles and descriptions. Interviews, documentary analyses, and discussions were the research procedures.Four relevant phases were mapped out.
