Co-opetition Co-opetition with Adam Brandenburger (Currency / Doubleday, 1996). Check out Co-opetition's web site.

Some simplistically say that business is war—firms fight to capture market share and bury the competition—forgetting that they must also listen to customers and establish partnerships to survive. More accurately, business is simultaneously war and peace, or in a word, co-opetition. It is cooperation when it creates a pie and competition when it divides the pie up. Using Game Theory, Co-opetition applies this mindset to change the game of business.
