What this workshop will cover
This introductory workshop will introduce you to our framework for applying an engineering systems approach in policymaking and how they can help to deliver better policy outcomes.
- Learn what systems approaches to policymaking are, and why are they important.
- Gain an improved understanding of key concepts and language from systems approaches.
- Gain experience using some ‘quick start’ methods to characterise systems of interest.
- Be provided with resources to support further application of systems approaches in policy.
Who should attend
These workshops are available to any policy team tackling a complex challenge looking for an introduction to systems approaches and how they can help them navigate their own complex challenge.
We have successfully delivered this workshop for teams at a national, devolved and local level working in a diverse range of policy areas.
What to expect
In this three-hour workshop, you will be introduced to our framework for applying systems approaches in policymaking. This is based on a framework developed by Professor John Clarkson in our work on Engineering Better Care.
Throughout the workshop you will be given the opportunity to put the principles from our framework into practice using group working on a case study in facilitated sessions.
- This workshop can be delivered online, in-person or in a hybrid form depending on what works best for you and your team.
- The standard number of attendees we would deliver this workshop for is 20 to ensure that everybody has the chance to contribute to the discussion.
- We charge £1,500 for this workshop and do not charge VAT.
As at January 2023, I felt that I was at crossroads. I needed to figure out how everything I’d done connects and why, then let that guide my future direction. Till then, I’d been working on different aspects of the electricity system. I wasn’t sure what framework to use to do such a synthesis to provide a way forward for the research. This workshop provided the framework for thinking that I was missing for synthesis of my work. I have now accomplished what I sought to accomplish and I’m grateful to the RAENG team I worked with.
