There are four basic models or approaches to policy making: (a) the rational approach, (b) incrementalism, (c) the policy-stream model, and (d) the stage-sequential model like the various nursing-theory models, a model that serves as a framework for approaching policy and policy making provides critical structure to this process.

In this model, it is suggested that if the cost to acquire information exceeds the benefits that can be derived from the information, it is rational to remain ignorant this aligns with our concept of using decision value to limit the decision effort, ensuring an appropriate return from using a rational decision making process (see planning. As such, this model finds use mostly in making long-term and policy decisions rather than short-term or floor level operational decisions rational decision-making is steeped in conservatism, and errs on the side of caution. In chapter six of their book studying public policy policy cycles & policy subsystems, howlet, ramesh, and perl give an overview of different models for accepting public policy as they emerged in the discipline of political science the first, called rational comprehensive model (also known as the stage model), bases decisions on the input.
