In contrast to chess, as a company director you do not have one but several fellow players. However, if you want to achieve your goals and not be surprised or overwhelmed by the moment. Then, just like chess, it is important to look at the short and also to the long game.
Constant analysis of your market, strategy, and tactics is essential. Where necessary, the strategy and/or tactics will be adjusted effectively. This so, you do not drift away from your goals when an opponent makes a certain move that could otherwise have negative consequences for you.
