Although the US Constitution envisioned a weaker executive branch, the modern presidency is a large and powerful branch of government. The bully pulpit as well as the expansion of the White House Office has allowed the president to unilaterally make policy at times in addition to its regulatory power. At the same time, Congress has allowed the President to expand its role beyond what the founders intended.

This three-day program will explore the different centers of power within the White House apparatus and how they make policy. How do different offices operate, compete or collaborate to serve the President.

Program Learning Objectives:

  • Read current executive branch priorities
  • Strengthen your grasp of who makes policy and how they do it; and
  • Develop organizational strategies that account for government decision makers beyond those found in Congress.
