The present paper proposes and integrated model for understanding the dynamics of political behaviour. Beginning with an exposition of the meaning, dimensions and forms of political behaviour, the paper discusses the significance of the situational, influencer, and target characteristics. Also, it discusses the influence of the cultural milieu in determining the incidence, nature and extent of political behaviour in an organization and its outcome. Areas for future research are suggested.
