I talked about "Gi" before in my previous articles. I translated this Japanese to be "Ultimate Righteousness" in English. I do not know if my translation is good or not good, but since this is a concept in human mind, it is not easy to define.
It might be "Gi" for Kanetsugu Naoe to realize ally with Takeda to lead his own lord to win the civil war to protect his country and people, otherwise his country would have been occupied by enemy countries. On the other hand, most of the "Samurai" would have believed that using gold or money for buying an ally with money was not right thing, not "Gi".
Judging from the result, succeeded in forming an ally and winning the local civil war, Kanetsugu's strategy was right saving his lord, country, and people. Therefore, we may be able to call it "Gi". It looks like the general, Kanetsugu Naoe was a strategist who could use flexible campaign, focusing utmost purpose, even without being influenced by how other people think about his strategy, campaign, and himself.
The lesson here is that we must focus on our utmost goal without being influenced by and too much worried about nature of actions, completeness, how will be others reactions.
