Management versus Politics

🔥NEW You can argue that management is the sister of politics because of the following reasons:
  1. Management is guiding Politics to plan its objectives.
  2. Politics and Management have similar goals. In business management, the achievement of profit is the purpose. A good reputation is important for this. In politics, profit and reputation (fame) are important too.
  3. The Management principle P+O+S+D+C works in politics too as a politician uses Planning to Organize his party to deal with the issues, the organization requires Staffing (people), and these people need Directing and Controlling.
  4. In politics, the authority and responsibility have to be delegated. Delegation of authority and responsibility is the part of management.
  5. Fayol’s 14 principles of management apply to politics.
  6. The political leader is just like the principal of a business. Both have the final responsibility for all activities.
