This paper explores the policy implementation and process management to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the implementation of the selected policy. This research employs a qualitative method and 56 teachers and school heads in 56 schools in Malaysia have participated in the interviews using random sampling and the data were collected continuously until it reaches the saturation point. Based on the process management principles, the Implementation of Education Policy Monitoring Instrument (IEPM) has been developed and utilized. Data analysis has been done manually beginning with the interview, followed by the interpretation of transcribed data through the process of open coding, axial coding and selective coding. Using the survey data, observation and also official document reviews, a management process analysis is conducted using the seven steps of the Phase Planning Method (Ph.P Method) to identify the failure of the policy implementation. The findings of this analysis expose significant loopholes of the policy implementation. Different understandings of the policy intentions and the absence of strategic mechanism for policy dissemination are very significant in the planning phase. In addition, the findings also highlight the issue of ‘red tapes’ in the management process which has disturbed the effectiveness of the policy implementation. We also illustrate how the analysis and checking process can be used as a tool to identify any failure in the management process. Policy recommendations for the policy makers are also considered.
