10 Tips To Take Your Co-Creation To The Next Level

The future of innovation is co-creative. Complex problems require the insights and validation of all stakeholders and users. We also need as much thinking power as possible if we want to crack the wicked problems that lie before us. But co-creation is neither easy nor cheap.

1. Don’t put too much effort into it

2. Always come prepared

“No prototype, no meeting.” — Boyle’s Law

3. Use co-creation tools

4. Never say no

5. Be prepared to throw stuff away

6. Own your role as the expert

“Have strong beliefs, but hold them weakly.” — Jeff Bezos

7. Realize that the team gets what it deserves

8. Understand that you are not what you make

9. Be open to the input of others

10. Be agile

“Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.” — First rule of the Agile manifesto
