Leadership and time are powerful drivers of policy change. Both can be considered as structural elements of policy-making. Regards to leadership the article focuses on why, when and how leadership becomes a fundamental driver of policy change, by focusing on the fact that policy leadership may be viewed as a collective, longitudinal, horizontal dimension of the policy dynamics which develop throughout the policy process. Respect to time, the article makes the distinction between the time of policy and the time inside policy.
