This post demystifies The Art of War’s ancient treatise on military strategy with my basic interpretation spelling out step-by-step,the 13 gems of strategic thinking. Alongside Machiavelli’s Prince, Sun Tzu‘s “The Art of War” has been one of the texts cited as a source of razor sharp strategic thinking for the Business world. Ever wondered why it’s so famous?

Hi Elish.

I loved the book, and really enjoyed your interpretation of the 13 Tactics. I found it quite easy to read about them from a business perspective.

Perhaps the long standing learning i have gained form the book (as it's a couple of years since I read it) is linked to all that I am currently reading and learning about online business and communication - always think what your customers wants to solve, and they are more concerned about their problem / pain than your suggested solutions. They want you to offer them their solution, not yours.

This form of thinking propels us into strategy immediately, compelling us to think of the opposite side's point of view.

Great analysis, and what a monster post!

This is amazingly detailed. I have been meaning to read the Art of War for a while now and never had the chance to get around to it. Shows me what I am missing.

Thanks for the Comment. The reason i got the detail in?(I have to confess) i was kinda writing this for myself as much as everyone else and wanted to get to grips with it on a basic level - nevertheless there's still way more detail in the actual translations and intriguing insightful observations on human behaviour to be found at every level
