Collaboration or competition…what ever it takes to get the right design
—  Greg Melander - use all methods of coming to the right design.  If using the competition method be sure that even this method has “good will” build in so a culture of excellence can exist in any organization.
Whoever creates the goals of a project also defines what success looks like for it. Therefore, on any project as a designer, try to always work directly with the person who is the goal creator, the vision storyteller and therefore the decision maker. It is rare to have any design accepted without the designer being in this exact spot. To get into this spot, either build trust or get really lucky.
