Management Material is a card game with a corporate theme where the players try to win by avoiding being promoted to management. This is done by playing Excuse cards to avoid the Project cards and passing the Project to the next player. Other players may also play Recognition cards on you, which make it more difficult to get out of the project with an Excuse. Ultimately, some player will end up completing the Project, and that player adds the card to their completed projects, pushing them closer to the 30 points necessary to be identified as Management Material and losing the game. The last player that avoids being promoted to management wins the game. Event cards provide an additional randomizing element.
