I was talking with a Professor of Local Government in Stuttgart recently about co-creation in the public sector. (Note: More often known as co-production in the public sector rather than co-creation as in the private sector). Apparently, central and local government is starting to experiment with engaging citizens directly in the design, inplementation and operation of services for the public. There have been some successes and some failures. He pointed me to a number of good resources about co-production.
Have you been involved in or seen any good examples of co-creation (co-production) in the public sector?
What made them successful or unsuccessful?
PS. I have attached three files on Co-Production from the UK Cabinet Office, nef and Nesta.
Maybe you have seen other ones that might interest Wenovski members.
