Co-creation is not just a way of designing systems with the consumer in mind, it’s a fundamentally collaborative mindset that, when successfully embedded, can change culture and mindset of staff groups and organisations over time. 

The setting conditions for effective co-creation involve management and staff humility, and a willingness to engage in long-term discussion around change rather than short, implemented changes. 

This can result in solutions for complex problems that address those solutions, rather than just acting as a tick-box indicating that they have been ‘dealt with’. 

This workshop will explore the principles underpinning co-creation and how this approach can avoid ‘simple solutions for complex problems.
