The term ”Co-Create” or “Co-Creation” may be new to you, but the business concept has been around for decades. Have you ever been approached by a company to give feedback on one of their test products? When was the last time you took a company survey that asked about your experience and suggestions for improving it?
In its base context, Co-Creation refers to the collaboration between experts and their stakeholders – customers, suppliers, business partners – to share ideas and concepts to create a better, more robust product or service. In today’s blog, Akorbi Digital explains how they use this concept for RunMyProcess.
Co-creation is often used when a company needs the following:
● Obtain a fresh perspective on products, services, or the business in general
● Cross-pollinate with other industries
● Risk reduction – obtain feedback and data before launch for greater acceptance
● Identify trends
● Identify consumer drivers and influencers
There is more than one way to initiate co-creation, and you will have to identify which is best not only for your business but also for your need and desired outcome. If you aren’t ready to open up your business to mass input, then sourcing a group of experts to come in and offer input, feedback, and ideas may be the best course. These experts would not be employees but may work in the same industry in which you’re doing business. They are already familiar with processes, consumer needs and can offer a new perspective to you.
Need a more extensive view? Crowdsourcing may be your best bet. Using the ”Rule of Big Numbers,” – companies will use social media platforms to get feedback and input from mass audiences on products and services. This can give a company a great deal of feedback. Still, you have to be careful that you are actually receiving input from your target audience and not just people with an opinion who never plan to use your services.
The ”Community of Kindred Spirits” is termed precisely as it sounds – it is the process of collaborating with experts who have the same concerns, interests, and desires as you and want to work with you to develop better products and services. These like-minded people will have to be hand-picked for the best outcome.
