Game of Businesses

You may have heard of the television series Game of Thrones.  If you have not it is a television series adapted from a series of books about nobles from several different royal houses, each fighting to gain control of the entire mythical world in which they exist.  Through politics and connections they work to remove their rivals, often in cutthroat ways.  While we are hoping that you do not use the same tactics, there still is the chance to look at some of the ways that the characters maneuver that can be adapted to business.

In an article from Inc.com they look at the various steps towards making decisions to further your own goals.  You want to have supremacy in your own business and there are still ways that you can work to outpace other businesses. Knowing when to move and where means that you need to have the knowledge about your rivals that they may not even realize about themselves.  Being a better planner and knowing your own strengths and weaknesses allows you to work effectively.

If you have an interest in checking out the series be warned:  It is not a calm, quiet show.  It involves graphic images and many adult situations.  If that is not the type of television you choose to watch, then read the article and skip the show.
