Rowland Worlu, Maxwell Olokundun, Augusta Amaihian, Fred Inelo, Chinyerem Adeniji


This study explored the linkage between corporate politics and the resource based theory. The first part featured a conceptualization of organizational resources and review of the theoretical underpinnings of the resource based view. This was followed by a review of the classifications of resources. The second part featured an over view of corporate politics as a concept and the link between corporate politics and the resource based view. The last part featured an outline of organizational factors that motivate political behaviour as well as a highlight of some political resources employed by individuals within an organization. Finally the study concludes with an overview of the implication of political resources to management as a field.
