Abstract [en]

The on coming technology improvement has led to the revolution of most business,

leadership, and administration methods. As a consequence of the technological improvements

and globalization, the public management has been forced to adjust to the ever-changing

functions and requirements in the different areas of leadership. This has led to the

introduction of political leaders as the executive heads of major businesses in order to create

the desired level of coherence between political and corporate systems especially when

conducting international businesses activities. Consequently, this document seeks to assess

the roles of politicians as managers, and determine if they are useful to the business world or

they are just a symbol of leadership. In doing so, the document also seeks to investigate on

the probable lessons that can be acquired from the political world into that of business in

order to lead to the realization of long-term benefits.
