Our Texas policy development law and lobby firm in Austin can help you and your team create, refine, and execute mission-critical outcomes for your organization.
You have a policy goal. You want to influence the Texas legislature into enacting, repealing or modifying a law. You need to approach the situation delicately and strategically. No matter what the political atmosphere is in Austin—whether it’s favorable or unfavorable to your position or organization—you need a solid plan.
It’s simply not enough to oppose or support a certain law or an initiative. You need a detailed vision for what success in the real world would look like, and then you need to advance on that vision adeptly, deploying resources such as strategic alliances, possibly partnering with a lobbying firm in Austin, and creating and modifying your public relations and educational campaigns. You need to pull everything together to manage your efforts in an integrated fashion, much as you would manage the building of a refinery or the rollout of a major new product.
Policy development is once an art and a science. Even if your organization has a pretty clear idea of what it wants to achieve in the months or years to come—and has a vision of how to proceed on a tactical level—you need consistent, insightful feedback. Otherwise, you could wind up focusing too much on convincing a policy maker who is already in your corner, or you could miss out opportunities to connect with other stakeholders and form powerful strategic alliances.
Organizations that develop policies often have grand plans about how to make the world better and more profitable. But when these plans come into contact with the real world, chaos is often the result. No matter how brilliant a Texas public policy proposal may look on paper, you should never underestimate the factors capable of throwing you off the horse and forcing you to recalibrate on the fly. Great preparation is key.
When you're clear and focused about what outcome you want, your initiative will be energized. You’ll be able to reduce the number of steps you need to take to get to your goal. You’ll be able to find hidden shortcuts and blast through or skirt around the obstacles in your way. But your ability to focus and stay focused depends on your preparation, your team, and your resources.
Our Austin policy development team can help you throughout the policy development cycle: from the earliest conception and refinement stages to bringing the policy to life in the real world. We’ve been through this process so many times with so many diverse and powerful organizations. We can help you avoid common mistakes, find surprising methods to get what you want faster, and connect you with key policy makers, lawmakers and decision-makers.
