Political strategists tend to believe in which "if all the really influential people agree which something should be completed, it will be done". They emphasise a power structure that commonly involves not only formally recognised leaders other than informal, unofficial leaders as well. Much of the work completed under the political strategy is the output of the leaders' informal relationships.
The political strategy emphasises the identification and influence of people who seem most capable of taking and implementing decisions. It commonly focuses on those who are respected and have the largest constituency in a provided area. One's level of influence is based on one's perceived power and ability to work with other influential people to reach targets in which are valued through one's constituency.
