University competitions for corporate sponsors
Topic: Types of Competitions
September 19, 2015
Due regards. Please, can you simply summarize any of the competitions by giving illustrative examples of such competition that can occur in a university campus.... What exactly is that competition that can actually take place AMD attract a corporate sponsor....?
Toritseju - Nigeria
If your goal is to attract a corporate sponsor, You can have a competition between students in an area of interest to the corporation. For example, a technical company might be interested in sponsoring a science competition among the students. This would also be to the company's benefit to recruit science students.
Likewise, an investment firm might sponsor a competition concerning new business ideas.
Strategies applied to Education
Topic: Art of War

How can the strategies of Sun Tzu on waging war be applied to the DepEd organization?
Teresita - Philippines
Although the "Art of War" lays out strategies to win without losing too much in the process, I am not sure it is suitable to a Department of Education organization.
It is better to have a positive approach toward achieving the goals of educating students. Thus includes seeking finding for the teachers and schools. You do not want to have an adversarial relationship or have goals to defeat the other side.
There are good points in the Art of War that can be applied to running a business. However, business is often a competition. In fact, some businesses even consider customers as "the enemy" to be overcome. But those businesses usually do not last long.
Good communication and seeking a win-win solution for everyone should be the best approach in education.

Topic: Business Location
December 9, 2014
The best location strategy in a retail business is to site your business close to your competitors discuss. citing 4 advantages and disadvantages.
elias - Ghana
You want your retail business located in a place that is easy to find, such that customers can readily access the store. It should be on a street that has sufficient traffic for people to see and get to your store.
Often, you will find competition close to such locations.
One consideration is the cost or rent for such locations. You do not want to ave to pay too much for the location.
One consideration is that you do not want to be too close to a competitor. Having two stores next to each other and selling similar items can hurt both businesses.
Suggested basketball link
February 1, 2014
I must say, I really love the article "How to win basketball games" I'm emailing you because I think my website is a valuable resource for your article. My name is Lamar Hull and I'm the founder of http://inspirationalbasketball.com. A little bit about myself, I played at Davidson College under Coach Bob Mckillop with Stephen Curry, current NBA superstar. I also played professionally in Europe. Inspirational Basketball is a youth basketball site that provides basketball & coaching drills, techniques, tips and inspirational stories. I think it would be a useful link for the article mentioned.
It would be a privilege to be listed on your site!
Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.
Lamar - USA

It looks like you have a great background in basketball and love of the sport. Best wishes in your endeavors.

To be successful in your studies, you are really competing with yourself to do your best.
Try to eliminate distractions when you are studying. This will help your concentration. Taking notes in class and reviewing them is a good way to improve remembering important facts.

The use of the Sexton artillery vehicle
April 28, 2013
Britain and Canada only used the Sexton for indirect supporting fire. They kept the Sextons well back from the front line and used forward observers to direct overwhelming fire on a target.
In spite of its confused origin <--- who would have thought
Cobra - USA
The Sexton was a self-propelled artillery vehicle of World War II, used by the Canadian and British Armies.
Thanks for telling how they were used in battle.
Research paper on competition in business
March 8, 2013
I want you to help me to write a good conclusion about topic of business and competition in my research paper, because am not well in the development of the conclusion, by focusing on the advantage and the disadvantages of competition in business.
nabila - Tunisia
The introduction of your research paper should state the theme, purpose, or solution to a problem you are proposing. Then the body of the paper should explain the important points and give your argument. You conclusion then summarizes your proof.
For example, "In conclusion, I have shown the following advantages and disadvantages in business competition: X, Y, Z. If done correctly, the advantages of competition in business can overshadow the disadvantages.
Also see Business Competition for information on the topic.
Use of Terrain with respect to business
Topic: Art of War
October 6, 2012
Can you translate the six terrains (Chapter 10) in "The Art of War" to business? can you please translate it one by one? thanks!!!
In "The Art of War", proper use of terrain can help get a competitive advantage on the enemy. A similar concept works in business, where you want to get a good location for your business that will be an advantage over your competitors.
You want a business or store that is readily accessible to your customers.
When a salesman works a territory, the area can be considered "entangled" such that other salesmen have difficulty making sales there.
There are locations for a store that can seem enticing but are really not good and can be considered "temporizing" locations.
If an opposing store is in a location that is like a narrow pass, it would be wise not to try to build in that area.
A high location for a stores or one that is easily seen by customers is a preferred location.
