The digital landscape is constantly evolving, and with it, the way digital technologies and services are developed, deployed and operated. One of the most exciting developments in recent years is the concept of co-creation in digital services. Co-creation refers to the process of collaborating with users, stakeholders, and other interested parties to design and develop a product or service. In practice this means working together to create more effective, efficient, and user-friendly services. The scope of collaboration in co-creation spans many different activities that range from the design and the digital marketing of a product to the specification of the service delivery processes of a service.
In recent years, co-creation processes have received much attention, as they revolutionize the way digital services embrace the users’ needs. Alternatively, companies may outsource the development of digital services instead of engaging stakeholders in the implementation. Co-creation and outsourcing are two distinct approaches to developing products and services, each with its own unique set of advantages. Outsourcing involves delegating tasks or projects to external parties towards saving costs and accessing specialized expertise. On the other hand, co-creation emphasizes collaboration and partnership between stakeholders, including users, employees, and other interested parties.
