Abstract:

"Companies such as Enron, WorldCom and Andersen have shown us the underbelly of senior management and it ain't pretty. Power is a zero sum game - which means that the more they have, the less you have. This is always the way it has been and it's not about to change. You might want to join them in fact. Fine. But in the meantime you have to survive. And to survive you need to understand how the game of corporate politics works." "In Games Companies Play, Gerry Griffin and Ciaran Parker reveal how to play, and better still, win in the messy, murky and sometimes downright dirty office games that accompany our working lives." "Drawing on the methodology explored in The Power Game and further explored in their much sought-after workshops, Games Companies Play is the answer to surviving those bruising and emotional encounters we all experience in our working world. It is essential reading if you want to stay alive in the world of work and be ahead of the game."--BOOK JACKET.
