Spartan leaders knew when they combined weaponry SKILLS with a standardized combat METHODOLOGY and campaign-specific battle STRATEGY that they had a SYSTEM. A calculus for winning! A formula for success. They recognized that their greatest competitive advantage wasn’t in superior numbers, brute force or bravery. It was their system! The combined training and application of skill, methodology and strategy. A SYSTEM AS EQUALLY APPLICABLE TO BUSINESS AS IT IS TO BATTLE— AS VALUABLE TO LEADERS AS IT WAS TO LEGIONNAIRES.
