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.
