Description

Enacting legislation on Capitol Hill is only one part of the policymaking process. Congress regularly enacts vague laws, leaving policy details to the discretion of executive branch agencies. The policy process also includes the White House agenda — formally, through the budget, or informally, through the president’s bully pulpit. Rules, regulations and executive orders can significantly affect organizations’ bottom line. Examine the many dimensions of executive power and how they affect your enterprise.

“The course provided a window into the White House. Class content created value that I’ll carry forward for the rest of my career.” – Class participant
