Improving Management Policy

(p.189) 7 Improving Management Policy
Ensuring Greater Yellowstone's Future

Yale University Press

This chapter explains the options to improve management policy in greater Yellowstone by focusing on decision making, adopting active learning, and managing adaptively, all in the interest of identifying and supporting common interest outcomes. Widely recognized standards for good decision making can be used to appraise the existing decision process when leaders understand that improving policy means upgrading how the decision process functions. There are many tools available to help leaders and others learn actively, among them prototyping and case-based learning, or harvesting the lessons of experience. This is a way to examine past experience, find lessons, and diffuse and adapt them to future work. There are many possible programs to convey new leadership styles and problem-solving methods for policy-making in greater Yellowstone, all of which can reinforce one another.

Keywords:   management policy, greater Yellowstone, decision making, active learning, improving policy, leadership styles, problem-solving methods
