This 2-day virtual live course is a perfect fit for federal government policy analysts, program officers, and subject-matter experts of the EC-2 to EC-8 levels or equivalent, and for managers.
This workshop will provide both policy analysts and subject-matter experts with some effective tools that will help them to formulate good public policy. Starting with perceptions of a problem, such as what might flow from a risk assessment, a minister’s office, or media reports, this workshop will help participants to apply an analytical framework and use tools with which they can formulate credible policy options. Policy Analysis Toolbox – Part 1 deals with problem-solving and the first part of options-identification. Policy Analysis Toolbox – Part 2 (P219) looks at assessment of options and making a recommendation.
This workshop will maximize the amount of hands-on learning through the use of case studies and group work.
At the end of this seminar, you will be able to:
• Understand the steps involved with policy analysis
• Identify a clear problem and objective
• Analyze the causes of the problem, leading to a series of policy and program alternatives
• Gain simulated experience through case studies and group work
