From the book, Ideation - The birth and death of ideas
“Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people” – David Sarnoff
PS: I might as well add - collaboration has the capacity to bring out the best in products as well as people provided we have the attitude, patience, (collaboration) skills, tools and "time". Competition is like a steroid, effective in the short run but detrimental in the long. Collaboration is like natural nourishment, probably slow but healthy.
