Organisational politics are a fact of corporate life. We all need to be adept at dealing with organisational politics; however there is no single formula for success. Outcomes in the political arena depend upon the subtle interactions and interplays between people. Each situation will be different and unique and what proves successful in one situation may prove disastrous in the next. In essence organisational politics is an art rather than a science!
During this session you will learn how navigate the stormy waters of organisational politics, how to deal with those conflicting priorities and hidden agendas. As a consequence you will be better able to keep your projects on track, exceed stakeholder expectations and enhance your reputation as a Project Manager.
