More than 50 years ago, an aging oriental man dressed in black pajamas, leading a rag-tag army of peasants and partisans,booted the French colonial army out of his country by out-thinking and strategically exhausting them. How he managed to drive both the colonial armies of the French and the invading forces of America and its allies out of Vietnam represents a case study with far reaching strategic implications for those of us who are faced with the challenges of managing the deployment of potentially disruptive technological innovations.
