Thinking Strategically: The Competitive Edge BEA236

Hobart

Note:

Introduction

Strategic thinking is the art of outdoing an adversary, knowing that the adversary is trying to do the same to you. All of us must practice strategic thinking at work, as well as in everyday life. As a business manager, political adviser, lawyer and in the day-to-day pursuits of life (such as buying a car) you will be trying to win the competition. This unit is about the basic principles you can adopt in the attempt to become a better competitive strategist in business and in daily life. The unit draws these principles from the fields of business, politics, law, sports, warfare, fiction and modern art forms, such as the movies.
