Do Competitive Work Cultures Lead to Better Performance?

I am searching for information and sources (books or articles) to give me information about differences between competitive and cooperation cultures at work. And what types of cultures are competitive ? Thanks for your help.

Differences in International Cultures in the Workplace

Read about Ricardo Semler and Semco for a cooperation culture in Brazil. Japan has a culture of cooperation as well in business.
The USA has a competitive business culture, with plenty of books by industry leaders to document that.

Effectiveness of Competitive Work Cultures

While competitiveness is usually a good thing in the business world, encouraging competition between individuals or departments within an organization is no longer and not always the preferred approach. There is research showing that organizations are moving toward a more collaborative and team-based approach.
A 2017 Deloitte Human Capital Trends Report found that 94% of companies globally believe that “agility and collaboration” are critical to their organization’s success. And 32% of respondents say they’re changing their organization’s structure to be more “team-based.”
