To facilitate co-creation, you need to understand the Process; what steps do you take to be co-creative throughout an entire project? The co-creation navigator guides you through the different stages of co-creation, from preparation to execution, and directs you to tools and methods that help you in each stage. You will learn how to build your project's foundation, how to get in the right frame of mind and how to remain innovative throughout the co-creation process.
The co-creation navigator helps people who wish to work with a diverse group of citizens, users and/or stakeholders to develop new products, experiences and/or services. First timers will learn about co-creation (methods and mindsets) and people more experienced in co-creation can explore new methods (and in the future, add and share their own preferred methods).
