Competition versus Cooperation

Porter has undermined society with his over-emphasis on competition. Co-operation should be the driver of business and progressive companies are seeing this and ditching competition and Porter.

Competition and Collaboration

It is a complex topic, competition can end the life of the weakest, competition gives birth to new players, it is the origin in many cases of the most innovative ideas and the reason for many jobs to temporarily disappear. It is still to be discovered who is right or wrong.
Collaboration can build wealth too; but finding a healthy reason for it has not seeing many successes. I hope this can trigger additional thought.
