Overview Among the various diaspora, the Chinese and Indian have larger networks and richer documentation on strategy. Sun Zi's The Art of War, Admiral Zheng He's Art of Collaboration and Genghis Khan's Art of Winning are famous Eastern wisdom that havebeen successfully applied to business. The Indians have their own Machiavelli named Kautilya (or Chanakya), whose book Arthashastra expounded the Mandala principle: `The enemy's enemy is a friend'. While Kautilya focused on statecraft, there is an even older Indian document on conflict called The Bhagavad Gita. The concept of detachment advocated in The Gita is similar to (but not the same as) the Daoist Wu Wei principle of non-doing. Both support universal harmony and are evident in business activitiesfor corporate social responsibility. This book is an East-East convergence of ideas that highlights key aspects of Chinese and Indian thinking in managing expectations at the individual and corporate level to enhance productivity.
