There is a study made about Management based on Somali Pirates and Taliban (insurgents in Afghanistan), you can read more about it in the article from economist.
What is interesting for me is the comparison between Somali pirates strategy in attacking ships and strategy Nintendo in penetrating gaming market and competing companies like Microsoft.
Also Taliban strategies is very interesting for me in project management, and how companies can have small teams taking quick decisions without returning to management and doing micro-management. They don't wait for long-term approvals.
I liked it and I wanted to share it with you.
