Associate the topics to the competitive strategies that we covered in Module 1.
Back up your assertions through research from established news articles, business cases, the module notes, etc.
A “topic” here corresponds to a specific technology presented in the notes. “Application” above refers to the way the topic is applied or implemented in this company.
