Why we should let project managers run general elections – Raconteur

Considering the Conservatives’ “lost majority”, should project managers run the election campaigns? For example, the four top staff of the “Stronger In” campaign, attained such high level positions, due to who they know. Project managers should run election campaigns, due to their three quality traits. These traits are clarity, reliance on numbers, and the ability to coordinate multiple groups of people. In conclusion, project managers provide better performance than those currently in charge. So far, recent campaigns were not optimal, therefore there is a necessity to declare more qualified managers for election campaigns.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s the campaign manager’s job to mobilise this army. For politicians, this may be new territory.
  • It is possible we could have another election ahead. The hung parliament may fail, triggering a second general election.
  • The third strength of project managers is the ability to co-ordinate multiple groups of people. And boy is this important in campaigning.

“Project managers are master delegators. They don’t try and do everything themselves.”
