PolicyMaker 4 Software

Analyzing Players

Once you have defined your policy, PolicyMaker asks you to define who the critical players are. By evaluating the positions, power, and other attributes of the players with PolicyMaker, you can construct a working model of your political landscape.

After you have analyzed the players who may be affected by your policy, PolicyMaker can display this information in easy-to-read reports, tables, and diagrams. One major table, the Player Table, allows you to see all your players sorted and color coded on the basis of their positions and power.

This table provides you with an overview of the key players. It can be sorted by several variables, allowing you to look for opportunities which may have escaped a less systematic analysis.
