Very often those who hold positions of high public confidence, make decisions based solely on their previous experience and / or intuition. They do not use methods of policy making. In other cases, the policy will come across difficulties in trying to identify the real problems in the management of the political process, but spend considerable resources in the fight against the fact that, in reality there is only a symptom of the problem element. During the course, participants will deepen their understanding of the methods of public policy analysis – from the identification and description of the political problems before communication with the interested parties in solving the problem. For the success of the course, the key is that the participants were able to see the work in the eyes of policy stakeholders – different groups or society as a whole. A significant part of the course will be devoted to the definition of the public good, the debate about what services should be provided by the state (central and local) and private companies, as well as the impact of local factors (culture, history and values ​​of the state, the economy, social factors, etc. .d.) on the work of the state manager.


The aim of the course is to raise the level of theoretical knowledge and practical experience of the participants in the management of public policies. Participants get to the real world of political processes, which is quite complex and contains many of the objective and personal (subjective) factors. Then, before the participants will put ethical dilemma in the management of public policies and the difficulty in finding a consensus among the group members, each of which pursues its own goals.


The course consists of lectures with great interactive components. The last session will be dedicated to presentations in small groups, which will be recorded on video and commented on by other participants. Videos will be later sent to each presenter in person, so that he could review them and try to improve their presentation skills.

As a result of the course, participants will be equipped with the knowledge to be involved in the management processes of public policy and continue their learning process by achieving directly during operation.
