Some Normative Implications of a Systems View of Policymaking.
Dror, Yehezkel
Public policymaking institutions and their operations should be viewed as complex systems, to be analyzed and improved with the help of basic general systems theory ideas and concepts. Possibilities of and needs for changes in the policymaking system can be illustrated by eleven improvement proposals: explicit strategy decisions, explicit learning feedback, better consideration of the future, much analysis, encouragement of creativity and inventions, improvement of one-person-centered decisionmaking, development of policy professionals, development of politicians, establishment of policy sciences as an academic discipline, radical changes in school teaching of civic and current affairs subjects, and explicit and systematic metapolicymaking.
