The process of policy development and implementation is one in which an idea is conceptualized, developed, adopted, and evaluated. Policy development is rarely a linear process; instead, the domains of the policy cycle overlap or occur out of order. Ideally, a problem is defined, potential policy solutions are identified, analyzed, and prioritized, and then the best solution is implemented.
