Policies may be developed and applied at many levels and may range from formal legislation and regulations to the informal rules by which organizations function.
The activity of developing policy generally involves research, analysis, consultation and synthesis of information to produce recommendations. It also involves an evaluation of options against a set of criteria used to assess each option.
At Dorion Associates we develop policies by understanding the relevant organization, its players and their roles and making them part of the development. In doing so, not only do we improve the ability of individuals to take action but also the capacity of groups, organizations or committees to influence change.
We also conduct reviews for already developed policies to assess impact, compliance and effectives and thereby give recommendations.
