Management in Politics/Government Principles of management have taught us that we can not have just one manager. You need to have a systematic level of managers to run anything, and a ladder for promotion if a higher manager leaves for whatever reason. Even the government knows this to be true. That is why they have made the Order of Presidential Succession in case the president must leave office for whatever reason. This stepladder, if you will, was set up due in part to the fact that between the 19 th century and the 20 th century, more than a third of our presidents were in some way taken out of office.
