Overview for Alexander the Great's Art of Strategy: The Timeless Lessons of History
Alexander the Great (356_323 bc) was arguably the greatest military strategist, tactician and ruler in world history. By the time of his death, aged thirty-three, his armies had conquered virtually the entire known world, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the foothills of India. His achievements have inspired and influenced a great number of past and current military, political and business leaders. This book provides the wisdom and secrets of this great empire builder, demonstrating how they can be applied to conquer today's challenges. Blending insights from his years of business experience with his lifelong study of Alexander, Partha Bose interweaves a gripping biography with compelling analyses of the strategies, tactics and leadership approaches of successful institutionsâ€”including Dell, GE, Honda, IKEA, the Harvard Law School, and the East India Companyâ€”and individuals, such as Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Bernard Montgomery, Gandhi, Jack Welch and Lou Gerstner.
