Many governments are indecisive about the role of the state in this era of rapid change, and a new policy development and management paradigm is emerging – a transition from administration to management is under way. This book offers a practical framework within which policy can be conceptualised, formulated, implemented and evaluated.



Institutionalisation of the Policy Analysis Framework

When all the policy development processes have been completed, policy instruments and systems designed, best practice guidelines formulated, and the organisation restructured to accommodate the change process, there is a need to ensure that the new system is incorporated into the total organisation so that it becomes sustainable. It should be mentioned that the incorporation of the new system, while desirable, may meet with resistance from within the organisation, especially those agents who may be threatened by the new policy framework. In this regard, due care should be taken to ensure that the new system is appropriately institutionalised.
