Great policy managers build high performing policy teams that deliver great policy advice. That means ensuring the policy team knows what it’s trying to achieve, has a culture of constructive challenge, innovation and continuous improvement. It means the systems and processes are in place to ensure that policy advice meets demand and has the right impact.
