This work was just to look at the causes and the effects of politics within organisation. It started with the reasons for groups within organisations, causes and possible effects of organisational politics on the organisation and the employees.  Finally, the work made it clear that employees need to relate which may give room for politicking but moderation and utmost supervision should be the guarding principle.
Contribution/ Originality
This study contributes to the existing body of knowledge and literature by exposing that politics exist within organisation. The study went further to give adequate meaning to politics within organisation and finally documents mainly the likely causes and effects of excess organisational politics on employees and organisation.
