The Cambridge Policy Boot Camp method was developed by Dr Nazia M Habib, the Research Director of the Resilience and Sustainable Development Programme (RSDP) and a multi-disciplinary team of experts at the University of Cambridge, UK, to help policymakers improve their decision-making process.
Methods from decision science, creative design, political economics and systems thinking are combined to help participants identify ways to tackle big policy challenges.
Each boot camp is designed to strengthen the thinking capacity and reasoning of the participants in a short burst of time. This is to help them to endure and appreciate the challenges related to driving policy and systems level change. By bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders in the decision-making process, the policy boot camp is a co-creation forum for improved understanding about how to create solutions.
