Lessons from Gladiator


“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

I watched this movie again last night. There are lessons for project managers and consultants of any type:

  1. Know who are the Mob
  2. Know who are the Senate
  3. Know who is the Emporer
  4. Know who You really are
  5. Know that roles change quickly and politics are as deadly as swords
  6. Do not know when you are defeated
