This program does not teach answers to specific problems - it provides a strategic approach to problem-solving. From the start, participants will take on a leadership role, discovering ways to look at issues from new perspectives. Through classwork, group work, and individual study, participants will practice strategic analysis daily, until it becomes a natural, ingrained response.
Participants are expected to contribute their professional expertise to complement the program's learning experience, and are selected to reflect a broad cross-section of functional and operational responsibilities. The program is a unique opportunity to gain perspectives on public policy and management, to strengthen managerial skills and acquire insights into managerial practice, and to interact across agency and executive-legislative branch boundaries.
