Workshop: Co-Creation - A Quick Taster

By Hans Begeer and Alvito de Souza

Brussels: 22 March 2017

Today we live in an increasingly complex world. A planet that has moved from global interconnectedness to an ever shifting and entangled worldwide habitat. The phenomenal rate of movement of peoples and ideas has engendered an unprecedented pace of innovations, advancements and, yes, conflicts.

We struggle to cope in our organisational and societal structures designed for the fleeting reassurance of stability. But how can we manage when the assurance of constancy is replaced by the reality of unrelenting change?

Coming to grips with the complex issues of our time requires a ‘whole system approach” where all who have a stake in the issue are involved from the start. One such approach is co-creation.

Co-creation is trending as many organizations search for ways to stay imaginative and relevant (or even just survive) in today’s uncertainties. Despite the positive buzz about co-creation, the feedback is that it can be challenging to implement effectively. Co-creation is not a quick fix. It is an all engaging process which needs to be meticulously planned and given adequate time and resources (energy) to set up, initiate and sustain.

By attending this taster workshop you will be able to:

  • Discover the 6 principles of co-creation
  • Share situations and limits to co-creation
  • Find out about conditions to successfully apply co-creation
  • Explore self organizing approaches to management
  • Feel what it means to apply co-creation

The workshop is based on the book, “Co-creation… 13 Myths Debunked”, (Begeer Hans & Vanleke Lesley. (2016), Lannoo Publishers nv) which will also be available.
