Course

In this dynamic five-day online workshop, Professor Malcolm Sparrow, former senior British Police Officer and Professor of the Practice of Public Management at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, will explain the complexity of social regulation, managing compliance, enforcing the law and security in a world that emphasises harm reduction and risk-control.

Develop a clearer understanding of the resources and authorisation needed to run effective risk-control, solve problems and manage compliance operations.

You will discuss current prescriptions for reform, such as customer service and process improvement, considering the regulatory task which values broader public purposes. You will discover how an agency can use innovative compliance tools without being 'soft.'

What will you learn?
