    What This Course is About

    In the complex world of policy development and delivery, the devil awaits you in the details. Good policy advice recognizes that implementation is not a separate exercise, but one that has to affect policy formulation right from the beginning. This workshop will help participants think through: 

    • Framing policy advice that takes into account question of implementation and adaptation,
    • Building implementation into design: cost, procedures, capacity and infrastructure,
    • Building stakeholder voices into policy design,
    • Advising on different delivery options on a specific policy goals,
    • Understanding the mix of delivery issues that arise in association with one achieving a single policy goal,
    • Using tools such as the OPS Inclusion Lens to identify potential or existing barriers within polices to the government’s diversity goals
    • Adaptation and learning in policy roll-out.

    Driven by Real Experience

    The learning format will be driven by real cases from within the Ontario policy memory bank – case studies that have been developed over the past three years. Practitioners will bring their perspective to these cases. Throughout participants, working through the cases and through each other, will build leading practice ideas to apply in their own environment.
