Collaboration???competition in another form?

Ugh, my bones shudder. The whole premise just doesn’t sit well with me. I guess a lot of this has to do with my background, experiences and values. After discussing this on my course I felt like the following summed things up based upon Oxford Dictionaries definition of collaboration.

Collaboration to anyone outside the private sector = “1 the action of working with someone to produce something”

Collaboration in the private sector = “2 traitorous cooperation with an enemy”

Perhaps that’s why we’re beginning to invent new terms i.e. collective impact.
