Inter-organizational collaboration is becoming increasingly significant as a means of achieving organizational objectives in turbulent environments. Yet it is not an easy process to implement successfully. Drawing on the work of authors with a high level of relevant experience, this volume provides a thought-provoking and accessible introduction to the theory and practice of 'creating collaborative advantage'. The first part of the book develops a framework of key dimensions for understanding collaboration. Different perspectives highlight the diversity of rationales and contexts involved, and the range of elements which need to be considered and addressed when embarking on collaborative endeavours. The second section focuses in more detail on collaboration in practice. It examines the problems that can occur when different 'stakeholders', who frequently hold different aims, cultures, procedures, professional languages and power resources, work across organizational boundaries. The last section addresses specifically the processes of acting as a facilitator to collaborative groups.It discusses how and why a third party facilitator role can be helpful, and explores the various processes and techniques that can be used.

This explores ways in which women are socialized to deny their competitiveness, using instead indirect strategies to get what they need. Only when women learn to define themselves through competition, will they be free to explore individual potential and establish a necessary network of intimacy.

As George Bernard Shaw said, "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." Like other creative geniuses, scientists have achieved breakthroughs as a result of irrational motives -- notably the desire to best a rival. Revealing how each resulted in extraordinary discoveries, Michael White explores eight all-too-human rivalries over the past four centuries: ISAAC NEWTON vs. GOTTFRIED LEIBNIZ ANTOINE LAVOISIER vs. JOSEPH PRIESTLEY CHARLES DARWIN vs. RICHARD OWEN THOMAS EDISON vs. NIKOLA TESLA THE ALLIES vs. THE AXIS POWERS FRACIS CRICK and JAMES WATSON vs. LINUS PAULING vs. ROSALIND FRANKLIN and MAURICE WILKINS THE UNITED STATES vs. THE SOVIET UNION BILL GATES vs. LARRY ELLISON .

For the great Renaissance masters, the creation of art was not only an intellectual or aesthetic exercise. It was a contest. The artists of 16th-century Italy knew each other's work, knew each other's patrons, and knew each other - sometimes as friends and colleagues, sometimes as enemies, but always as rivals. This volume views the lives and greatest works of Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael and Titian through the prism of their ardent rivalry. Rona Goffen, scholar of the Italian Renaissance, seeks to bring the artists to life in this account of their impassioned strivings to outdo both living competitors and the masters of antiquity. Rivalry was the leitmotif of the Renaissance masters' careers, Goffen shows, and Michelangelo's art was their competitive point of reference. Quoting from poems, letters, treatises, contracts, and other contemporary writings, the author demonstrates the extent to which artists, as well as their patrons and colleagues, characteristically thought about art in the context of rivalry. Renaissance patrons often stipulated in contracts with artists that their commissions be more beautiful than works made for other patrons. The artists themselves, motivated sometimes by the immediate and pragmatic advantages of patronage and at other times by the hope of immortal fame, competed for commissions ranging from highly public projects at the Vatican to small works intended for the intimate setting of a collector's study. These masters conceived their works in dialogue with each other's inventions, evoking their rivals' ideas precisely with the intention of surpassing them. Goffen brings into sharp focus the immediacy, intensity and complexity of artistic rivalry among the Renaissance masters, recovering for us the emotional and professional circumstances that brought about their magnificent creations.
