Political Value

There are two types of political value:  Mediation and Exploitive
  • Mediation - sets policies and standards to reduce intra- or inter-organizational process friction.
  • Exploitive - is gatekeeping, that is, I won't let you pass until you provide me with some value, whether it is getting all of the i's dotted and t's crossed or forking over the contents of your pockets (greasing the skids, so to speak.)
Mediation political value is one the key missions of any government, though, throughout history the majority have used exploitive political value.
