A Teaching Topic in Strategy and Structure
This teaching topic examines the stakeholders and other immediate influencers of the implementation environment - how the landscape for implementation is characterized by complex networks of players across public, private and non-profit sectors. How does the policy tool chosen shape this landscape? What does government bring to the implementation table, and what do other players? How do these get aligned to secure public value despite such constraints as time, money, organizational capacity?
