The course content is excellent and strategic. In defining problems, it will help us identify the issues we face, in constructing alternatives, it will include the involvement of stakeholders, thus making it holistic with a potential for buy-in to all. In projecting the outcomes, it will help us in finding choices of where we want to be. In confronting tradeoffs, we will learn to build a consensus. For beginners like us, it will give us an insight on how to understand the relationship between politics and public policy.
