The Art of War has been applied to many fields outside of the military. 

Many business books have applied the lessons taken from the book to office politics and corporate business strategy. Many Japanese companies make the book required reading for their key executives. 

The book is also popular among Western business circles citing its utilitarian value regarding management practices. Many entrepreneurs and corporate executives have turned to it for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive business situations. 

The Art of War has also been applied in sports. National Football League coach Bill Belichick, recorder holder of the most Super Bowl wins in history, has stated on multiple occasions his admiration for The Art of War.
