Globalization has made co-creation an interesting area of human curiosity and research action. The challenge is how we should understand, create meaning around co-creation and use it to make our innovations sustainable, beyond our own geographical reference.
To do that, co-creation does not presuppose the preeminence of knowledge, but a need for shared experience around a locus where work of the solution will occur.
The central question is how best to apply the idea of co-creation aiming at creating future markets with a focus on innovative sets of products, policies, strategies, alliances, services and models. read more »
Current Project (Consciousness and innovation)
The objective of the pilot project is to explore how we might address the project challenge. We will endeavor not to seek solutions but identify a problem space where several questions can be identified in alignment with participant research interests. We will try and determine our individual research interest through collective experience, embedded emersion and meditative practice, all the time seeking a broader orientation of the intent of this research and away from a more normative narrower definition of our intent. The purpose is to move away from the problem locus, which is identifying a single research question or the objective and orient ourselves to the problem space where several questions and research agenda can co-create a better awareness of how spiritual practices can affect or influence innovative thinking. The most important aspect of this pilot project is not to seek a solution or a singular problem that would represent this relationship and thus the project but to consider smaller research projects which are grounded in research interest of our participants to co-creatively address the larger picture by attempting to answer their own research question driven by their own research interest. We conjecture that through inter-connectedness, meaning individual driven research question will be inter-connected to others research inquiry, collectively addressing the projects overall objective, which is to discover and improve our understanding of the relationship between spirituality and innovation.
