About This Class

Master the skills that policy analysts use everyday to evaluate and solve public problems! Learn basic concepts, tools and techniques through this easily accessible course!


Governments operate in complex environments with increased demands and limited resources. Policy analysts in this environment are often called to make ethical and far reaching decisions daily. As a scholar of public policy and a former analyst within the President of South Africa I developed a system that makes the complex simple, the methods accessible and the process replicable. 

And now…I want to share this system with you in this course.
