PPOL 545 - Mgmt & Ldrshp:Dev Countries
A key component in the study of development policy is the ability to work through how policies are put into action. Successful development policy implementation requires more than getting technical analysis right; it requires a critical understanding of the underpinnings of good governance and a mastery of the management techniques that yield results on the ground. This course focuses specifically on the challenges facing mangers in less developed countries, as well as the options and resources available to effectively implement policies in those countries. Through class discussion, simulations and assignments, students will apply theoretical concepts in management to actual development policy challenges, gaining familiarity and practice with the management and leadership tools that will lead to effective development policy implementation.
