Utilization of available resources

The first lesson of management science is to choose wisely and utilize scarce resources optimally.
During the curtain raiser before the Mahabharata War, Duryodhana chose Sri Krishna's large army
for his help while Arjuna selected Sri Krishna's wisdom for his support. This episode gives us a clue as
to the nature of the effective manager ‐ the former chose numbers, the latter, wisdom.
