Why All Companies Need a “Political Strategy” – New in MIT Sloan Management Review

My co-author Blair Levin and I are pleased to announce the publication of our latest article for MIT Sloan Management Review, which will also appear in the upcoming Winter issue.

The article reviews growing clashes between companies embracing stakeholder values and roiling political waters at home and abroad.  Many enterprises have been caught off-guard, leading to damaging PR crises and ad hoc responses.

We propose the creation of a comprehensive political strategy, and offer five guiding principles that successful companies have already embraced.

Fallen behind

We’ve fallen way behind in media posts, including December of last year and nearly all of 2013. Larry’s was kept busy with several technology policy events, including the U.N.’s World Conference on Information Technology in Dubai, CES, State of the Net, the release of his privacy paper from the Cato Institute, and the publication, in March, of his co-authored article in Harvard Business Review, “Big Bang Disruption.”Larry is now hard at work on the manuscript for a Big Bang Disruption book, but he’s still keeping up with interviews and articles for Forbes, CNET, and a new series on legal issues in innovation for Harvard Business Review.

We’re slowly making our way through the backlog, but in the meantime, check out our Facebook page, which is always current. And check the new Facebook page for BBD, launched in April, 2013, and our new Forbes column on BBD.
