90-842 Public Policy Implementation

Department:Public Policy & Mng.
Related URLs:

The most enlightened public policies and programs often fail because of inadequate attention and understanding of the problems and issues involved in implementation. This course is designed to improve the student's knowledge and understanding of how public policy is implemented, or how you take policies already enacted by law or regulation and make it work. Implementation includes such elements as communications, resources, attitudes, and organizational structure among bureaucracies. In studying policy implementation, the student needs to consider the complex interaction among these elements. This course will cover public policy areas of operations, delivery systems, resource mobilization, and conflict resolution. Implementation is the bridge that brings together the techniques of public policy development and analysis with the tools of public management so that programs and policies successfully achieve stated goals and objectives of the policy-makers. Examples of current public policies and programs will be used throughout the course for in-depth review and illustration.
