Collaboration: A Generation Gap | LinkedIn

From a Geoffrey Moore post suggesting perhaps "collaboration" is a relevant term again. I'm not seeing many "social business" references these days, so perhaps we're getting back to basics.
"Fast forward some number of decades, and now when you go to school, collaboration is called learning, and you are rewarded for it. Now the great liberation is from the oppressiveness of a competition culture, where the focus is on earning rewards that set you apart from your peers, to the freedom of a collaboration culture where you can all win together. Individual accountability in this context is still important, but there is a lurking concern that too much focus here will lead to loss of alignment which in turn will require either stopping to realign or resigning yourself to having less than a full impact."
