Read about Ricardo Semler and Semco for a cooperation culture in Brazil. Japan has a culture of cooperation as well in business.

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.
