ANZSOG’s Effective policy implementation: one day intensive

Developing coherent policies that have majority support is only part of government’s role; policies also need to be implementable and implemented effectively.

  • Effective design of the policy implementation approach.
  • How to identify, engage and sustain relationships with stakeholders that are essential to implementation.
  • Managing risk in implementation, governance and resource allocation.
  • Tailoring monitoring and evaluation to policy implementation and associated functional requirements.

Who should register?

  • Officers and managers responsible for enhancing the effectiveness of policy implementation.

Who will lead the course?
