Applying Behavioural Insights to Public Policy – executive education with Professor Michael J. Hiscox

The Executive Forum with Professor Michael J. Hiscox will provide a detailed introduction to behavioural economics along with a practical guide to applying behavioural insights to improve government programs, policies, and administration.

Professor Hiscox is an acclaimed leader in the field of applied behavioural insights, serving as founding Director of BETA in Australia and advising behavioural insights teams in several other countries. At Harvard, he teaches the popular course, Behavioural Insights and Public Policy, examining applications of behavioural economics to policy design, along with Field Experiments for Policy and Program Evaluation. This executive forum draws from both those Harvard courses.

What will you take away?

This forum provides a systematic review of the key insights from the science of behavioural economics, then examines several important applications of those insights to help solve problems in specific areas of policy. It also provides a general overview of the existing empirical track record of what works.

At the conclusion of the forum all attendees should have a clear understanding of the key insights and be able to:

  • Diagnose the critical behavioural issues associated with the success or failure of a particular policy or program in any area of interest
  • Design one or more behavioural intervention or “nudge” that can address those issues
  • Describe the type of trial that could accurately assess the effectiveness of the intervention
  • Explain and predict individual behaviour to solve core policy problems
