Cooperation

Cooperation or co-operation, refers to the practice of people or greater entities working in common with commonly agreed upon goals and possibly methods, instead of working separately in competition.

Cooperation is the antithesis of competition, however, the need or desire to compete with others is a very common impetus that motivates individuals to organize into a group and cooperate with each other in order to form a stronger competitive force.

Cooperation in many areas such as, farming and housing may be in the form of a cooperative or, alternately, in the form of a conventional business.
