Analyzing Potential Solutions

How to choose among potential solutions to a problem?

Stakeholder power analysis highlights acceptability and feasibility of solutions.

Policy analysis techniques compare estimated impact across itemized criteria which can help to identify the solution(s) to pursue.

Advocacy techniques are key to influencing the policy process.

Successful planning uses both policy and media advocacy strategies/tactics.


LUNCH (60 minutes)



Brief orientation to message framing and media.


BREAK (15 minutes)


Implementing Enacted Policies

Once a policy is enacted, a government bureaucracy implements it (e.g., programs, regulations, rules, and budgets).
