What is Competitive Dynamics?

Sun Tzu Now the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his headquarters before he fights a battle. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory and few calculations to defeat. What need be said of no calculation at all?
Sun Tzu Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
Attacks-First Mover Advantage First Mover AdvantagesFirst Mover Disadvantages
Sun Tzu Those who arrive first at the battleground will have sufficient time to rest and prepare against the enemy. Those who arrive late at the battleground will have to rush into battle when they are already exhausted.
Footholds A small position that a firm intentionally establishes within a market in which it does not yet compete. How do firms use footholds?
Sun Tzu Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
Competitive Response Speed of response. Jack Welch: “Success in competitive rivalries is less a function of grandiose predictions than it is a result of being able to respond rapidly to real changes as they occur. Multimarket Competition Mutual Forbearance
Sun Tzu If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
Blue Ocean Strategies Executives try to create and exploit vast untapped markets rather than competing directly with rivals.
