Personal, cultural and generational experiences have always made me feel uneasy with open and upfront competition. My consultancy and teaching practice, predominantly in the public and voluntary sector, has contributed to a limited exposure to 'competition' as a positive and straight value. More recent experience of tutoring MBA students in a business school has opened new perspectives on the understanding and the practice of competition in different worlds and contexts.'
