The Art of War in Business Technology

"Being a business leader is similar to being a commander in war.”


This sentiment sets the tone for a tactical guide to not only surviving but thriving amid industry disruption, globalization, and digital transformation.

In today’s concrete jungle, the life of an entrepreneur and business leader can be perilous. Each day brings the possibility of new opportunities, unforeseen risks, and inevitable emergencies. At every turn, technology is either friend or foe (and sometimes both). The enemy isn’t just across town; they’re across the globe, waging cybersecurity attacks in constant succession. Everyone is fighting for the same customers, employees, resources, protections, and market share.

The name of the game? Do more with less. 

The mission? Protect your bottom line.

Technology is non-negotiable. Ignorance is peril. Knowing which technology solutions make the most sense for your business can no longer be left to chance.

As a veteran of the United States Army, A-Jay is no stranger to combat training and preparation. In his latest book, The Art of War in Business Technology, A-Jay brings lessons in warfare to the digital battlefield. His field-ready tactical guide for business owners is a compilation of easy-to-deploy strategies for simplifying technology management.

Inside, you’ll find real-life stories, applications, and practical advice for gaining a better vantage point over operations, navigating business technology, developing a strong digital foothold, and positioning yourself for long-term success.

It’s on you as a leader to take the reins of your organization, find the gaps and close them. This book gives you the inside scoop to do that. Now stop being lazy and go take action!"

"Very insightful and thought provoking. The stories at the beginning of each chapter brought the main points to life, and I enjoyed the personal aspect which offered ideas on how to apply this in both professional and non-professional contexts. I will be using your book for our business here at Bridges."
