Sun Tzu – The Art of War
Art of War : Sun Tzu’s Legendary Victory Manual Comes to LifeHosted by : James Lurie All warfare is based on deception.
Therefore, when capable of attacking, feign incapacity; when active in moving troops, feign inactivity.
When near the enemy, make it seem that you are far away; when far away, make it seem that you are near.
– Sun TzuThe Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on strategy written 2400 years ago.
Sun Tzu suggested the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment.
He thought that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through an established list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions.
Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a changing environment, competing plans collide, creating unexpected situations.
