Competition is largely stuck in a stereotype of winning and losing which limits our understanding of the dynamic and how it can be effective in the work place. The scarcity and challenge models of competition which are found on the sports field are for many people the basis of their engagement. But competition in sport is bound by agreed rules and umpires and does not easily translate into the workplaceAre you competitive? This question is one many people struggle to answer in any detail because society generally turns a blind eye to competition outside of sport and trade in external markets. Using eight dimensions, competition is defined and discussed in this volume within the context of management to reinvigorate discussions of gender in the lives and different relationships men and women mangers encounter on a daily basis.
