In addition to these customized short courses, SPP offers open enrollment programs on specific topics of immediate interest to executives requiring knowledge about emerging trends, advances in specific fields, and policy developments. These programs typically analyze key domestic and global issues of concern to both government and business and address how such issues affect the ability of executives to accomplish their goals.
Teaching is focused on how to work in and take advantage of changes in the policy environments in which executives find themselves. One advantage of open enrollment programs is that participants from different agencies and organizations meet one another and can develop lasting professional contacts. Success of these programs is measured by the degree to which participating executives learn new information and come up with novel ideas that they can apply directly to their work.
