Description

Today's global economy is a battleground. To survive and thrive, you'll need every weapon you can get. Microsoft, Sony, and Starbucks use business practices based on the ancient Chinese military text The Thirty-Six Stratagems-now you can, too. Author Kaihan Krippendorff explains how to apply each stratagem to make your business profits soar, such as:

  • Stratagem #1-Kill with a Borrowed Knife: Indirect attacks on your adversaries can catch them off guard.
  • Stratagem #19-Watch the Fire on the Other Shore: Companies that temper power with patience will be more competitive in the long run.
  • Stratagem #33-Hide a Dagger Behind a Smile: Threatened adversaries resist-trusting ones do not.
With Hide a Dagger Behind a Smile, you can take on your competitors and win-one battle at a time.
