Though Sun Tzu’s ‘Art of War’ was written 2,500 years back, strategy is seen as a young discipline in business management. Over the last half to three-fourths of a century, strategy has carved its own niche in the larger business management realm. Strategy Huddle: Management Lessons from Sports draws out significant strategic management knowledge from 27 different phenomena in diverse sports including soccer, basketball, marathon, boxing, chess and cricket. The practical applications of these strategies are shown through business case scenarios in this book. For new managers seeking to sharpen their strategic management concepts such as blue ocean, behavioural and network strategies as well as for strategic thinkers interested in understanding the deeper connections between strategy and sports, this book brings to the readers an enriching learning and strategic experience.
