The aim of this improvement is the improvement of own war approaches to enemy destruction. In many cases are these approaches so far, even loose own goal and the reason of the prosecution of war. The usage of this approach in the competitive struggle author refuses and considers it as entirely unacceptable. The author sees a decent space for the war philosophy of Sun Tzu usage in business. The eastern war philosophy based on Sun Tzu work is possible to use minimally from two following reasons: a) The war philosophy of Sun Tzu is a priori in common focused on gaining the goal, no at the vombat b) This philosophy is complexly changing the way of thinking o firms strategist to gaining goal approach The author finds in two basic principles the fundamentals of potential usage of eastern war philosophies in exacting business environment. At the close the author bring forward potential problems of the Sun Tzu war philosophies, which are connected with western way of thinking of managers. Those managers have the tendency to privilege direct struggle as the basic way of competitive conflict solutions.
