Corporate planners rarely incorporate political analysis into the planning process in the same systematic way that they include traditional business factors. Nevertheless, top management knows that politics can affect the bottom line. Reaching a delicate compromise solution within the corporation between labor and management, for example, can mean the difference between growth or decay. Influencing a trade association to adopt a helpful policy or to provide a valuable service to an individual corporation can create new business opportunities. Securing tax breaks from local or state governments or more liberal environmental regulations from the Federal Government can have a profound impact on business costs.
