One of our favourite books here at Panther and arguably the world's most important book on strategy is Sun Tzu's the Art of War. While it deals with the strategy of conducting successful warfare, most of its principles can be applied to business strategy as well.
Below are five potent quotes from the book that apply to business strategy.
"Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."
"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war. Defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win".
"Attack your enemy where he is unprepared. Appear where you are not expected."
"Great results can be achieved with small forces."
