This is to inform your organization that business politics are changing depending on the events that took place with the passing of time and how they are influencing performance in your company. The management has a mandate to protect its employees from harm that may occur internally and between its boundaries. It also has a duty when its staffs are in danger beyond its borders to work in collaboration with the relevant authorities or states to ensure the safety of the people. In the above mentioned situation the state has a role to maintain peace by recognizing the validity of another independent state.
In order to operate effectively and efficiently, the organizations require competent employees in their departments. Political management are the objectives that mainly control leadership positions and human resource, finances, the organizational structures along with the employee relations matters. They are also known to cover the overall employee needs along with the development goals of the organization. Political management’s objective is mainly set to reduce both internal and external conflicts by around 30 percent and in so doing there is an improvement of the whole company, employees and external environments.
Identification of political threats
Management of external business boundaries is the most critical for the control of external factors that may influence internal business politics. External influences are considered to be sources of deferent opinions pertaining on how recourses should be managed, human resources and financial operations of the business. Firstly, there is a need that every manager or the leader to identify who the stakeholders are in the organisation job and in the on-going organisation projects, and then they will have to mark out their exact positions on the overall stakeholder map. The next important stage in political management is the control of communication process for how one will provide an insight to political trust and support.
The organization must be aware of their strengths and weaknesses and this will help them in formulating the required strategic plan for the company. They should know about their potential targets and how they will compete against them. These are the points which should be kept in mind while planning out the strategic approach towards anything. The company should be able to develop such a plan which will also help them in critical conditions also.
Threats to a business rise when external factors in a business environment compromise the profitability and reliability of the business. They create a vulnerability that is faced by a business when compounded to its weaknesses. They are peculiar external factors which cannot be controlled. For instance, the economic downturn of 2008 was factor that most businesses could not control. Political and social trends can also be possible threats to a business. A good example is the current social and political push for products that are more environment friendly as compared to those that are not. An essential part in analyzing the threats of a company has to involve a look at the strengths of its competitors.
The political leader understands the political reality of organizations and can deal with it. He or she understands how important interest groups are, each with a separate agenda. This leader understands conflict and limited resources. This leader recognizes major constituencies and develops ties to their leadership. Conflict is managed as this leader builds power bases and uses power carefully. The leader creates arenas for negotiating differences and coming up with reasonable compromises. This leader also works at articulating what different groups have in common and helps to identify external “enemies” for groups to fight together.
This approach is appropriate where resources are scarce or declining, where there is goal and value conflict and where diversity is high.
