Policy grows increasingly complex. Available interventions stand in tension with evidence, stakeholder expectations and budget as Departments strive for solutions that serve Government policy. Competing objectives can defy resolution. Line of sight may be mired in process.
The challenge so often facing Departments and NGOs is to distil the essence from complexity. Decision makers - Ministers, CEOs, Boards, funding committees - need succinct, well-reasoned analysis leading to practical options. This requires focus and judgement. Sometimes the more cost-effective solution lies with a single experienced policy specialist.
