Co-creation: Beyond The Hype

Many organizations have embraced the idea of co-creation, but there is still confusion on how to effectively implement it. In a one-hour workshop Maarten Pieters describes his view on co-creation and how he helps Signify (the former Philips Lighting) become a co-creative organization. He will share key learnings from his experience as Head of Co-creation and People Insight at Signify and the influence of the co-creative mindset throughout the organization.

Based upon his book ‘The 7 Principles of Complete Co-creation’ you will together discover how you can overcome barriers to co-creation and implement co-creation into your way of working.
