A competition is a contest between individuals, teams, companies, and even countries to determine who is better and who will reap the rewards of victory. Strategies and tactics are used to win the competition.
Although some people disdain competition, it is used in everyone's life from getting a job to being able to buy a ticket for a popular concert. There is also the fun of competing in sports to see who can win. Businesses are concerned about beating the competition for market share. Finally there is war, which is the competition of countries over land and the spoils of war.
The purpose of these lessons is to help you understand competition and learn the factors, tactics, and strategies that can be used, such that you can become a champion in competitive endeavors.
