A Public Policy and Management Subject in the Analysis and Skills Domain

Policy and Management Analysis

This public policy and management subject under the Analysis and Skills domain is one of the four core subjects found in most public policy and public administration programs. It deals with concepts and analytic techniques fundamental to managing and leading organizations, including material on organizational strategy, motivating people, performance measurement, managing teams, persuasion, and operations. It is the normative, action-oriented, companion to Democratic Institutions and Policy Process, a core subject in the Institutions and Context domain. Policy and Management Analysis includes analytical frameworks and techniques that are useful for implementing public policy and managing organizational performance to achieve policy objectives. As such, the subject relates closely to elements of other Analysis and Skills subjects, particularly Analytic Methods and Leadership Skills.
