138 Policy Analysis for Everyone

“Analysts” are not the only employees called on to analyze and develop public policy; program managers and leaders make consequential choices every week.  Counties face many challenges that relate directly to policy questions.  What is the best way to help people find employment? What can we do to reduce the number of people experiencing homelessness? How can counties discourage recidivism?  Multiple solutions exist but too often we begin with a solution and ask whether we should adopt it or not.  Stepping back a bit allows us to more fully consider the options and tradeoffs. 
Participants will acquire policy analysis skills, learn to better predict the long-term consequences of policy choices, and understand what drives behavior.  

Instructor: Dr. Mary Kirlin is a consultant with local governments and a former public policy professor at Sacramento State University.
