Collaboration, and co-creation specifically, is demanding. The quality of communication, the level of psychological safety, and the availability of resources and time, to name just a few, all have a big impact on the organization's ability to co-create. Many of these factors are fluid by nature and hard to change. They are grounded in habits, structures and mindsets. But by recognizing them and making deliberate adjustments we can improve our success rates significantly.
For this, I use a holistic approach that combines systems thinking, appreciative inquiry, and action-oriented design methods.
