5. Maneuvering with an army is advantageous; with an undisciplined multitude, most dangerous.

故軍爭爲利衆爭爲危

Sun Tzu

Maneuvering or moving a large group of people, such as an army, can be beneficial if the group is disciplined and organized. However, if the group is not disciplined and lacks organization, maneuvering with them can be dangerous and risky. Sun Tzu was a Chinese military general, strategist, and philosopher who lived in the 6th century BC and is known for his famous work “The Art of War,” which is a treatise on military strategy and tactics.

In business, maneuvering with a disciplined team is advantageous; with an undisciplined team, most dangerous.

In a business context, maneuvering or making strategic changes within a company can be beneficial if the employees are well-trained and organized. However, if the employees are not disciplined and lack organization, making changes or maneuvering within the company can be risky and potentially damaging. This suggests the importance of having a clear vision and effective communication within a company in order to successfully navigate change and achieve success.
