Can Boards of Supervisors apply innovative decision-making models to create purpose driven policies? Decision making is challenging when multiple elected officials, government professionals, and citizens are involved. Nonetheless, there must be a clear process to move from defining a problem to implementing a course of action and then evaluating the outcome realized. The class examines legal principles established by the U.S. and Virginia Constitution’s, the Dillon Rule, as well as other ordinances and regulations which influence policy making and decision making. Class participants explore how they can work effectively across boundaries as well as apply strategic thinking strategies and the six thinking hats methodology espoused by de Bono.
