Successful project management
do you know your politics?
Few topics generate as much heat and passionate feelings as a discussion of political behavior. Most organizational personnel are quick to condemn politics and their chief practitioners—company “politicians’’—as predatory and counter to the interests of the overall organization. In fact, it is almost impossible to find individuals with even minimal organizational experience who have not had some bad experiences with office politics in their careers. On the other hand, most canny project managers will quickly point out that it is often through the effective use of organizational politics they are able to successfully complete their projects.
