The survey focused on practices of capacity building strategies in the state corporations in Kenya. Capacity building is the transformation of a nation's ability to effectively implement policies and programmes. It has been identified as the missing link and necessary precondition for the success of socio- economic development strategies. It is a critical element for sustainable development. However, little or more is known of the status and capacity building strategies of state development corporations. The survey sought to establish capacity building strategies and finding out the variables which influence strategies in the state corporations. Data was collected from fifty out of one hundred and twenty five state corporations. A designed five-sectioned questionnaire was administered to the randomly selected corporations from the list of state corporations that formed a basis of sample frame of this survey. Key strategies and practices surveyed relate to aspirations, structure, human resources management, strategies development, organizational systems and infrastructure. This being an explorative study, descriptive statistics were used to establish the awareness and factors influencing capacity development strategies.
