Implementing Public Policy (IPP)
New public policy ideas that promise to solve many of society’s problems are constantly emerging in governments, nonprofit and corporate organizations across the world. Unfortunately, studies show that more than half of these ideas fail during implementation, thus falling short of achieving their intended—and much needed—results.
Why is policy implementation failure so common? What can be done to overcome challenges and roadblocks so that we can achieve successful policy outcomes more frequently and make real change happen?
Implementing Public Policy is designed to equip policymakers around the world with both the skills to analyze policies, as well as the field-tested tools and tactics to successfully implement them. The program is innovative, and practical. It builds on the traditional executive education program experience through a seven-month engagement that blends online, on campus and applied action learning.
