Taking co-creation to the next level / Peter Horvath / Episode #87

By Service Design Show

Co-creation is still an ad-hoc activity in most organisations rather than something which is deeply embedded into the operating system. How can we change that and take co-creation to the next level? In this episode you're going to get some inspiration from Swiss direct democracy. I bet you didn't see that one coming. Peter Horvath has studied how the Swiss have embedded co-creation into their democratic system. A system which has been operating for about 150 years now. Involvement of customers was for a long time considered an unconvinient distraction by organisations. Then slowly but surely organisations started to involve customers inn their product and service development. Now we're seeing organisations who use customers as strategic partners who help them to shape the future. Just like the Swiss are doing with their citizens. But there are some important things you need to get right before you can adopt this next level of co-creation in your business. And in this episode you'll learn exactly what those thinsg are!
