Chapter: Weak Points and Strong

6.21

Translation:

Though according to my estimate the soldiers of Yueh exceed our own in number, that shall advantage them nothing in the matter of victory. I say then that victory can be achieved.

Commentary

Having more soldiers is an advantage, but it is not the only way that advantage can be gained. Superior strategy and tactics can enable a far smaller force to win.

The business world is rife with stories of small companies that beat much bigger companies. Superior strategy and stronger motivation go a long way towards success.
