When assessing our competitors, our clients and the grand settings, we ask many questions based on the principles of Sun Zi's Art of War and the rest of the Chinese eight strategy classics.
Following are some of the questions based on the ground level situations:
- Who is on offense and who is on defense?
- Who is taking the offensive initiative and who is responding properly?
- Who is taking the unorthodox approach and who is taking the orthodox approach?
- Who is in the state of vacuous and the state of substantial?
- Who is reckless and who is weightless?
