The Art and Craft of Policy Advising: A Practical Guide

Art and craft of policy

David Bromell

ISBN: 978-3319524948

This book offers a practical guide for new policy advisors and their managers, grounded in the author's extensive experience as a senior policy practitioner in central and local government. Effective policy advising does not proceed in 'cycles' or neatly ordered 'stages' and 'steps', but is first and foremost a relationship built on careful listening, knowing one's place in the constitutional scheme of things, becoming useful and winning the confidence of decision makers.
