This chapter will explore in more detail why politics is such a dominant organisational feature.

These make an important contribution to the way managers interpret their organisational roles, and our purpose, of course, will be to highlight politics as a highly significant mindset. We will show how this both fits and jars with the ‘official’ mindset — that of rational hierarchy.
