Competition is a natural part of any ecosystem. Often multiple life forms depend on the same habitat for space, or the same food source. As life forms compete, those with the most efficient attributes or skills survive and flourish in that particular environment.

When considering what is the most appropriate or most efficient option for an economic, natural or social ecosystem, we needn’t consider Competition as a duality which creates winners and losers. Competition gives us an opportunity to consider which design is appropriate at a given moment in time. As the ecosystem changes, we may find the competing design will better serve the stakeholders.

Competition can be kind, can be fun, and results in greater efficiency and effectiveness.
