Types of Policy Implementation
Once a social change issue has been identified and one has settled on a policy, the next step is to present the policy to the decision-makers. When the policy is approved, the process of implementation becomes the main focus.
Considering the examples offered by Simon in Chapter 7 of your Public Policy text, discuss the following forms of implementation in terms of human services:
- Administrative implementation.
- Political implementation.
- Experimental implementation.
- Symbolic implementation.
Discuss each approach to implementation in view of Simon’s writings.
