HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
As a business staffed by chess enthusiasts, chess supplies company, The House of Staunton, shares several parallels that exist between chess and business. Professionals can use chess and its parallels with business to improve their business strategies.
Chess and business are similar. At its core, chess requires players to protect an important chess piece while navigating solutions to challenges put in place by an opponent. Likewise, business requires professionals to protect valuable goods and services from outside forces. Businessmen and women who successfully protect and enhance their market position in the face of challenges succeed. Professionals can learn many lessons from the parallels between chess and business. The House of Staunton discusses those parallels:
Chess and business both require players to know the purpose of the game. Seasoned businessmen and women know that business is a game. To win, one must understand it's aim. Chess and business require players to comprehend the fundamentals of the game, how the game is played, what's acceptable, what's not acceptable, and more. They also require players to understand the overall objective, and to play with that objective in mind.
Chess and business require planning and foresight. Chess and business both require adequate planning and prediction. Just as in chess, when players analyze potential moves in advance, businessmen and women consider options before moving forward. In both worlds—chess and business—players must consider a variety of opposing forces when planning and do their best to circumvent problems that could cost them the game.
Chess and business require excellent time management and strategic use of resources. In chess and business, players have a certain amount of time to make decisions and execute moves. They must therefore learn to use that time wisely. Likewise, both games rely on strategic use of resources. Each player has its strengths and weaknesses, and the player who can use their resources to their advantage in the short-term and long-term game, win.
Chess and business require knowledge of the opponent. Chess players and businesses face stiff competition. To win, businessmen and women and chess players must understand their competitors, how they play, and how they're likely to act because knowledge of the competition can be used to improve one's odds of success.
