Commentary

Nothing is certain in war and victory starts with intelligence that allows understanding of risks and opportunities, projecting possibilities for each and then acting on the one with best outcome.

In business, risks and opportunities are often based more on opinion than data and calculated projection. Improving this will improve success.
