Mini-Quiz: Momentum in a Head-to-Head Competition

by Ron Kurtus (30 May 2007)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How would you describe momentum in a company?

Business is booming and they seem unstoppable

They have so much inertia that they never can get started

Workers can't be stopped, even for lunch

2. Why would a timeout cause an athletic team to lose its momentum?

Some players just give up after a timeout

The players go off autopilot and get out of sync

The referee can tell that they were cheating

3. What is a possible reason a group will perform poorly after losing their momentum?

They start to think about what they were doing and lose their confidence

That seldom happens

It is one of the mysteries of science

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Winning Competitions. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
