$995* + HST Three days
Location and Time
440 Laurier Avenue West, 2nd floor. 9:00am to 4:30 pm.
Participants are guided through a five-step process for setting objectives and analyzing different solutions or responses.
Through two practice sessions, participants will become better problem solvers, capable of evaluating a set of issues, identifying a range of possible solutions, and recommending the best one.
A core component of evaluating alternatives is to identify and understand the behaviours of affected groups. This is particularly important if a regulatory framework is being contemplated. The resulting behavioural profile is used both to weigh the effectiveness of various options and to prepare a compliance strategy, which identifies how to get various groups to conform to the wanted behaviours.
The advantages of different policy instruments are discussed, most notably regulations, standards, and guidelines.
The federal Regulatory Policy and the regulatory approvals process is also reviewed. Registration is usually limited to 16 participants.
