The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the 5th century BC. Attributed to the ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu – ‘Master Sun’, the text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics.
It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.
You would wonder what can a 5th century war lord teach us about modern day business challenges and their trials. Centuries later, his thoughts still hold good and are upheld with utmost respect and regard.
