  2. 2. What does Chess have to do with Management? When you play chess- • you consider the function of each piece and put the pieces in positions • Understanding how components work together, making the most of strengths and weaknesses • plan ahead • persevere in the face of adversity • execution and timing are central themes
  3. 3. A Metaphor • There is the initial plan, the execution of the plan, the project team (in this case the chess pieces), the monitoring and controlling of the progress Execution and timing- critical in the field • Both involve planning, strategy, and tactics. • Need to perform best considering the situation. You do not expect the rook to play like a horse • You cannot change the functions of your pieces, you can only take advantage of their strengths.
  4. 4. • Spending time trying to change a person can be futile compared to discovering his strengths and capitalizing on them • Benefit by just a little bit of process and risk management- issues in the form of risks that have to be addressed in order to reach a successful outcome • following the process-developing the pieces, controlling the center of the board, eliminating risks, and maintaining the tempo - the very same things that make for a successful project outcome
  5. 5. Shatranj ke Khiladi
  6. 6. Badshah-The Best Manager (King) • The tallest man on the board, the Best Manager is generally a combination of sheer talent, skills and aura. • The most crucial factor in winning any game, he is no less than the king ( , ) the most important piece in♔ ♚ chess. • Seemingly docile, he rarely makes his strategies obvious until the endgame, for which he reserves the most decisive and lethal moves. • The slaying of the Badshah would mean the lose of the battle!
  7. 7. Wazir Nama, Chronicling the Business Quiz (Minister) • Royal advisor • the most powerful piece in the game of chess • Strength-ability to take the war head on with his intellectual , brain-numbing prowess • attack in all possible directions, move any number of squares- unlimtied potential , well- equipped to execute decisions • This Wazir is less restricted and more powerful even in closed stress full positions
  8. 8. Aufinara- The Menacing Marketer (Bishop) • the bishop-unambiguously ecclesiastical figure. • Most influential on the floor, our bishop makes his presence felt on the scene. • Innovatively addresses specific areas and segments of marketing, much like the bishop and his quirky diagonal moves • Confidently captures the game by occupying the square on which an opposing force works.
  9. 9. Faras- The HR manager (Knight) • The knight ( ) is a piece in♘ ♞ the game of chess, representing an armoured cavalry) • always be close to where the action is, • best used on areas of the board where the opponents pieces are clustered or close together..
  10. 10. Rukh-The Warrior of Finance Games (Rook) • In the same league as the Wazir, the Rukh is a heavy piece • Strength lies in it’s value-same as that of the advisor. • Render the participating team with some advantage by being an significant, indispensible resource to the organization. • Forms a powerful base by his very presence in the team • Acts as a buffer during a crisis by managing the money flow in the org.
  11. 11. Treasure hunt-sepahi (Pawn) • The pawn ( ) is the most numerous,♙♟ historically representing infantry. • Strength lies in their number. • Movement- Do not move backwards-do-or-die attitude! Advancing a single square-moving one step at a time.
