What You Can Learn From Military Principles
San Tzu’s classic The Art of War written circa 500 B.C. discusses broad eternal truths concerning military and political philosophy. These were well adapted by military and business strategists. While Sun Tzu looks at fundamentals, this book examines the principles which define military methods to accomplish an operational task or attain a strategic intent. There is much more one can learn from these hands on military practices which are at the heart of any military campaign.
Almost all modern management principles therefore are a derivative of such military operational practices, tried and tested in different cultures, locations and circumstances. These evolved and have undergone change over the years according to the changing environment. The author explores each of these principles and examines their ‘core value’ that can be applied across a broad spectrum of situations in our daily lives and in business methods. The content is a blend of contemporary history, Science and Technology, Management, Psychology, IT, Leadership, Motivation, HRM, Economics, Military History, Strategy and Geopolitics, International Relations, Diplomacy and Political Science.
