APPENDIX D
A Taxonomy for Policy Analysis

The table following this narrative presents a complete taxonomy of the field of policy analysis, a field in which management analysts are frequent practitioners. This is the first attempt known to us that such a classification scheme, including appropriate reference material, has been developed for this field.

This taxonomy has several possible uses: as a guide to define the field of policy analysis; as a guide to study for comprehensive exams; as a tool to determine possible areas for research; and as a tool to apply theoretical concepts into practical applications.

It is important to stress that this taxonomy covers both the theoretical scope of policy analysis as well as the practical scope. The theoretical scope includes such issues as the possible approaches to policy analysis, analytical techniques, and boundaries. The practical scope includes the use of policy analysis in government, how it is produced and used, and the institutionalization of policy analysis.

Two points need to be made about the reference documents. First, this reference material is not intended to cover everything written about the subject, but to provide readers with a cogent introduction to the subject with a moderate amount of depth. Second, it is necessary to explain how to interpret the numbers listed under references. The first number (between semicolons) represents the title of the book or article, which can be found in the back of the taxonomy. Other numbers after the dash represent page numbers in the book or article. For example, (6-17; 5-172-178; 10-11, 12, 13) should be interpreted to read page 17 of the 6th book, pages 172-178 of the fifth book, and pages 11, 12, and 13 of the 10th book.
