Personal road map to co-creation in six easy steps | The Co-Creation Effect I’m often asked at parties what individuals must do to engage in personal co-creation. It recently dawned on me that I only knew how to describe co-creation from the organization’s standpoint, producing quizzical looks from my relatives and friends who are not in the business world. After all, it is a lot easier for a consultant to generate fees from a large organization hiring you to make more money, than it is to sell co-creation one individual at a time. So let me pick up the gauntlet, try my best incarnation of Wayne Dyer or Steven Covey, and tell you how to get on the road to co-creation in six easy steps. STEP 1: PEOPLE. STEP 2: INTERACTIONS. STEP 3: EXPERIENCE. STEP 4: TRANSPARENCY. STEP 5: PLATFORM. STEP 6: CO-CREATION. You are finally at home in the expanding universe of co-creation.

Blogs on Administrators I love movies, especially good movies about kids and about education. I'm also often disappointed in these films. I've become tired of documentaries extoling or attacking charter schools. I've also seen too many films focusing on at-risk kids in struggling schools that somehow manage to be clichéd, repetitive and boring. So when I discover films like the two that I want to share with you, films that are truly great in both their substance and the quality of the filmmaking, I feel uplifted and hopeful. They renew my faith in both public education and great documentary filmmaking. The Shapeways Co-Creator Platform The Shapeways Co-Creator Platform and what it means Co-Creation is the general tendency of companies to work together with their customers in order to create value for them both. CK Pralahad, one of the co-coiners of the term has said, ”Think of Google. I can personalise my own page, I can create iGoogle. I decide what I want. With iGoogle, Google makes the platform, the content is provided by Google and many other publishers and users make it meaningful by personalizing the page to their liking. The Shapeways Co-Creator Platform is our way of taking co-creation and 3D printing to combining the two. A designer can take a single design and turn that design into a template. The customer can then very easily customize, personalize and create his own unique objects to his or her specifications. A designer can now take any design they have and using Shapeways make it into something others can adapt and customize. Our Creator products are pure mass customization tools.

Co-Creation : BatesHook “Advertising says to people, “Here’s what we’ve got. Here’s what it’ll do for you. Here’s how to get it.” – Leo Burnett I’ve been in advertising for more than 15 years. So, why does Adland have such an image problem? Some blame holding companies and their pure focus on shareholder value, rather than focusing on reinvention of the agency model. The problem goes much deeper: people have lost trust in institutions and business. But, it’s time to change both. We need to make the advertising industry better. Our future will not look like the past. Our main goal is to make the world a better place. The belief that this is just a bump in the road and everything will get back to normal at one point is the biggest threat we’re facing. How ware we going to deal with India and China as the new dominant forces in the global economy? We really have no choice: All of us have to create a better form of capitalism.

Co-Creation | Just Thinking Aloud Introduction I’ve stolen this headline from Maggie Koerth-Baker, an American science journalist, who’s made the following observation: Invented by the British chemist Humphry Davy in the early 1800s, it spent nearly 80 years being passed from one initially hopeful researcher to another, like some not-quite-housebroken puppy. Out of it, she reasons that “the myth about a guy who has a great idea that changed the world” is an indeed widely used, but nevertheless pretty wrong understanding of innovation. Definition We often use the terms „Innovation“ and „Creativity“ synonymously, not making a real differentiation. Creativity is the mental base of every innovation. Therefore innovation takes much longer than the generation of ideas. Today’s world enables both, more creativity as well as more participation, but today’s world also requires to be more creative and more participatory. Implementation At least, the following three rules should apply within such a universe: Research Why? Perspective
