"A supermarket for collaboration"

What do we choose at any given moment?
Nine conditions influence our choice. How can you meet those conditions so that cooperation is the best choice? That is the subject of this guide: a book that can help managers to create conditions under which employees choose to work together effectively. Organizational consultants, facilitators, trainers, and coaches who want to provide organizations with practical knowledge and skills will also find guidance here.
Cooperation can be the basis for long-lasting and profitable working relationships in an organization, as long as management allows for the nine conditions so that cooperation is the best option for everyone involved. And this can be done without individuals having to sacrifice their own self-interest.
