Thinking Like Marines

Mike Wyly’s classic article, Thinking Like Marines, on applying the concepts of maneuver warfare to business, is now available here on Fast Transients (it was one of the first pieces I posted on in about 1999).

Contains this classic line, which resonates with successful leaders in any field:

I should interject here that control is not what maneuver warfare is about. In fact it is not what warfare is about. As a commander in Vietnam I wanted to unleash my marines on the enemy, not control them.

It will be available through the “Articles” button on the menu bar.
