Essentials of Policy Development

Related Tags

Public sector managers and policymakers are under constant pressure to deliver high quality solutions to complex socio-political, economic and sectoral problems and issues. But what are the skills needed to identify policy problems, assess options, formulate solutions, test their effectiveness, and evaluate their impacts? What kinds of policy making approaches should be used in dealing with different but interrelated policy issues?

To answer these questions, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy offers the Essentials of Policy Development programme. Participants in this course will gain detailed foundational knowledge and frameworks to understand the policy development process, from conceptualising public policy to evaluating options and measuring the outcomes and impacts. The programme will also equip participants with analytical, decision making, evaluation, and communication tools to help them become more effective in their roles.
