The need for unity(一)

作者:不是人 整理:本网站论文网 录入时间:2011-12-13 23:15:31

  (Over the past 12 years, the writer has been lecturing and

  consulting on the subject of Sun Tzu''s Art of War and its

  application and relevance to business practices and

  planning. As of to date, he has provided executive training

  , talks and seminars to over 120 large organisations

  (including 500 companies) and 20 countries. He is thus very

  honoured to be able to share with readers, through the

  columns of Lianhe Zaobao, some of his thinkings on this

  subject.)

  The need for unity is a well-accepted norm in the conduct

  of war. Thus, it is very interesting to note what Sun Tzu

  had to say about unity:

  "If the army is confused and suspicious, the neighbouring

  states will surely create trouble.

  This is like the saying: "A confused army provides victory

  for the enemy".

  From the quotation, one can easily learn four simple

  lessons.

  Firstly, if members of a group are confused, or worse, if

  they suspect each other, the seed for disunity has just been

  sown. This is true in the case of the army and the

  organisation.

  For example, when there are no clear lines of

  communication and distinctive demarcation of duties and

  responsibilities within a company, the employees will become

  very confused. To make matters worse, if personnel among the

  various departments are suspicious of each other, the

  company can never move in one direction!

  In the same way, if the people and various decision-making

  groups of a country begin to suspect each other instead of

  working in cohesion, disunity will set in. If the degree of

  suspicion and confusion persist for a long time, it is

  likely to lead to other undesirable consequences.

  In the extreme cases, it can lead to the disintegration of

  countries and organisations, as in the case of the former

  Soviet Union and some family-owned businesses that are even

  publicly listed.

  Secondly, confusion and suspicion will make the

  organisation vulnerable to external exploitation. In war,

  the enemy is always on the lookout for any weaknesses that

  can be exploited. Thus, if the army is in disarray, it

  provides the enemy a golden opportunity to exploit the

  situation.

  This is very true of any organisation. For example, when

  employees in a company are busy fighting each other,

  competitors can add fuel to the fire. Moreover, when the

  employees are disunited, unhappiness is bound to set in.

  This allows competitors to sow more seeds of discord, and to

  poach the more capable ones to join them.

  Interestingly, at the national level, the need to be

  united so as to avoid external exploitation is very real.

  For example, in the ongoing economic and financial crises
