The central argument of this guide is that the current unspoken assumption in organizational leadership and change management, that projects are either collaborative or competitive but never both, is fatally flawed and produces, at best, sub-optimal results and at worst total failures.
The guide proposes a new understanding of how the two activities, collaboration and competition, fundamentally interplay and suggest two new hybrid dynamics - “Edgy Collaboration” and “Eco Competition” - which organizational teams can recognise and employ.
The guide describes 9 practical disciplines for mastering the Collaborate/Compete “Interplay” and 7 personal leadership skills needed by organizational leaders who seek to master both dynamics in Collaborate/Compete Interplay.
