In the last months we have learned of some pretty amazing uses of co-creation. In South Korea an organizational change consultancy is using our book as a framework for HR training at LG, helping the organization shift how it works to more collaborative, enriched work spaces.
In Uruguay a university has put together a global Co-Creation Lab, a design program made up of virtual teams co-creating at the intersection of art and technology. Our book is the basis of the design activities. I and a few other design thinkers mentor teams through the journey of learning the art of co-creation.
Once these projects are completed, we will feature their stories, and what came from using co-creation, as showcases on the site.
We are very excited to announce the publication of The Art of Co-Creation: A Guidebook for Practitioners by Palgrave MacMillan. This is the result of many years of research and work with amazing people and challenges. Please share, or better yet, purchase a copy for your team or organization. HERE is the direct link to the publisher. You can purchase individual chapters or the whole book. Educators and Design Thinkers can also request a review copy for their class or company.
For over two years CCI existed as a research initiative at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Now it has evolved into a community of practice, existing globally online and locally through our actions. Congrats everyone for making this possible. We invite you to look around the newly revamped website. And, importantly, send in materials for us to post about you and your work. Welcome to the new look!
