The Political Life of Organisations
In organisational life, everything is political. We will never be able to create a working culture which removes the politics of organisational life, so politics will always be with us. The question becomes not "Should I play?" but "How should I play?". This article examines ways to play which are ethical and appropriate, and notes some behaviours to watch out for from those less ethical than you.
