Big Policy Canvas Research Roadmap

[...] * Policy making is conceptualized as a policy cycle, consisting of several different phases, such as agenda setting, policy design, policy implementation, monitoring and evaluation
Juliane Schmeling
Here the approach of an E-Policy-Cycle can be emphasised, where the evaluation phase is not anymore declared as an separated phase. Evaluation is here a continiuous and horizontal activity which has to be applied in all other policy cycle stages.

The policy making approach taken in the report is quite analytical and fails to take into consideration the political dimensions of policy making. Problems do not just ''exist'' out there and can be detected with analytics. Social conditions are perceived by policy makers (or other stakeholders) as problems, which might change over time. The detection of ''problems'' therefore has a political element, not just analytical. (see also: Vydra & Klievink, 2019: Techno-optimism and policy-pessimism in the public sector big data debate)

The policy cycle approach is just an approximation, other more modern approaches should be at least mentioned and discussed

Missing "decision making" after the "policy design"

One can meet many policy cycle approaches. However, i don't think that for the roadmapping exercise it plays such an important role. Maybe only in the sxenario building activities?

I agree with Emvol Trompev
