In 2019, we will be developing and testing a new Public Policy by Design™ competency framework to help clients understand, develop and apply specific skills and methods at various stages of public policy co-design, co-development, and implementation.

Using research evidence and practice from a wide-range of disciplines, we will isolate specific skills related to organizational management, stakeholder engagement, communications, strategic planning, design thinking, partnership development, influence, visual communication, government relations and evaluation.

Along with existing design principles, tools and methods, adapted versions of the new competency framework will be included in four new Public Policy by Design™ toolboxes we will launch in 2020 for public servants, elected representatives, not-for-profit organizations and other policy influencers.
