    Garry Kasparov on Strategy

    In today's ACF newsletter, Roland Brockman mentions an interview with Kasparov that appeared in the AFR.

    Here it is: "Kasparov's Secret: Great Enemies"

    NOTE: This is a free view article, though you may be asked to register.

    The article first appeared in the Harvard Business Review as "Strategic Intensity: A Conversation with World Chess Champion Gerry [sic] Kasparov", by Coutu, D.L., Harvard Business Review. Boston: Apr 2005. Vol. 83, Iss. 4; pg. 49.

    Summary: "Word Chess Champion Garry Kasparov discusses chess and how it relates to business and leadership. Chess has become part of the everyday language of many executives. Of course, chess is not the only game that businesspeople like to invoke. But there is something peculiarly different about chess. The image of two brilliant minds locked in a battle of skill and will - in which change plays little or no apparent role - is compelling. When asked what businesspeople can learn about winning from chess, Kasparov says the first rule is: Never, ever underestimate the opponent. It's also critical to keep a psychological edge. A person also has to make himself comfortable in the enemy's territory. When asked which successful CEO he most readily identifies with, Kasparov said it is difficult to answer because he does not like details, and to some extent all CEOs must concern themselves with detail."
