Cooperation is defined as the process of coming together, working together and helping one another to achieve a common goal.
Cooperation can be achieved either directly or indirectly depending on the type of activity carried out. For this reason, the types of cooperation are generally considered as direct or indirect.
Cooperation is said to be direct when similar activities are carried out by a group in order to achieve a specific goal. Think of it as a group of people who carry out the same work (or activity) in order to achieve a common goal.
Examples of direct cooperation will include:
Cooperation is considered to be indirect when different activities are carried out in order to achieve a similar or specific goal.
Division of labor is an example of an indirect cooperation since the different individuals working together specializes in their respective (different) field.
Using the banking institution as an instance, the cashier collects money from the customers, the IT personnel oversees the computers and other IT facility, the cleaner does her specific job, the security guards oversees both external and internal securities and so on.
We have other types of cooperation that exist around us; and such cooperation will be based on the environment we find ourselves.
Below are types of cooperation based on our environment:
Social cooperation is usually common among social groups.
Within these social groups, the members are expected to work together towards the common good of the group. For instance, fans of a football team will usually come together to support and cheer up their team during a football match.
Whenever football fans unite and cooperate in this manner, some football analyst may refer to them as the '12th' man on the pitch for their specific football club.
Religious cooperation will consist of people with the same faith and belief coming together under one head.
The christians will usually unite under one head in the person of Jesus Christ. Similarly, the Islamic faithful will also unite under one head.
In some countries; for instance Nigeria, associations are formed by these religious groups. Some of these associations will include the 'Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs' and the 'Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)'.
Financial cooperation is quite common in the past.
Here, different individuals come together to form a group where they contribute money with the aim of lending it to members of the group, one after the other. Each person may take their turn weekly or monthly depending on the agreement of the members within this group.
Groups that embark on financial cooperation are called cooperative society,
Community cooperation is seen in our respective communities, with an ultimate goal of developing the community where they are present.
If the government fails to perform its function in a community (let's say; the building of a community health center with its necessary infrastructure), the members of such community may cooperate towards delivering such project.
Other projects that may be achieved through community cooperation will include:
Trade or occupational cooperation is said to occur when members of the same trade come together for the common goal and development of their respective trade.
Trade cooperation is generally seen around us, and most often, the people comprising this group will fight for their rights if need be, even against the government.
Example of trade/occupational cooperation present in Nigeria include:
