Decision Making as a Public Manager
Research and find an instance of a policy compliance issue that has occurred in an organization related to the field you are pursuing as your career (Government, Nonprofit, Health). Find an issue that has enough detail for you to do a thorough examination of the policy and the compliance issues involved. Review the policy compliance issue that occurred and offer an update to the policy in the form of a policy memo and an evaluation of the issue by doing the following:
Analyze the problem you chose and write a 500-750-word policy memo that proposes improvements to the policy to better address the problem and improve the compliance issues. Be concise and follow the general structure of a policy memo. At a minimum, your policy memo should contain the following:
A summary of the problem
At least three possible solutions
Statement and explanation of the recommended solution with rationale
The implications and benefits of the recommended policy
At least three sources used to support claims
Graphics and/or other visual elements so it reflects the formatting of a professional policy memo
Create a presentation that briefly outlines the policy. Include your decision-making process for presenting the information contained in the policy.
Explain the specific policy compliance issues that occurred and why your proposed update will help improve the compliance issues.
