Political Management

Political Management, like Business Management, is a discipline where policymakers, lawmakers, campaigners, lobbyists, public affairs practitioners and others advance the democratic process.

What Political Management lacks — and what the Playmaker Influence System delivers — is a rational, standard lexicon by which to manage, measure and mature the political process.

Does it explain the gridlock of Washington? Yes. The play we call the Jam is central to what’s stopping so much good work and so many good ideas. Senators saying “no” is an example of this freezing at work.

Can it solve gridlock? It can help. Typical counter-plays to the Jam are the Reflect and Call Out — influence strategies that hold jammers to account.

Whether you’re lobbying a cause, introducing a bill, campaigning on an issue, working as a surrogate, or simply outlining a position, you are a playmaker in politics. Your plays can be planned and run. Your plays can be decoded and countered. But those who know the system and the plays to run win — before and after election day.
