Our vision

Our vision is to make organizations successful by helping them unleash the collective potential of people.

Our mission

We are cocreation. We stand for cocreation in its uniqueness: connecting people and ideas.

We help people to live true cocreation: as mediators, as managers, as politicians, as philanthropists. We enable and empower: Individuals, teams, organizations within and between systems.

We see ourselves as a central hub for the exchange and development of cocreation.

We want to be the place people turn to when they want to learn about and think about cocreation.

Our credo

Genuine cocreation always fulfills the following conditions:

cocreation always starts with the people involved and places them at the center of cocreation.

cocreation works with teams that are empowered to develop their own team personality. To achieve this goal, the team members need to know where each individual's strengths lie, what is important to them and what each of them expects from the common goal.

cocreation is based on goals that have been jointly developed or at least given a common meaning.

Our values

Our values relate to shaping the future together.

They describe what we expect from each other in order to be successful. So it is values that create relationships, because the bond between people is at the heart of everything we do:

Connection: Connecting people and their ideas across levels, systems and institutions.

Commitment: We act in such a way that we do right by those who trust us: We deliver what we promise.

Thought leadership: "We are cocreation": We dedicate our passion to showing cocreation at its best.

Our values are non-negotiable, form our foundation and have a lasting influence on everything we do.

Our books

Co-Creation. The power of collective thinking.

by Dr. Georg Michalik, illustrated by Katharina Busshoff

Co-creation is more than just a new term. Co-creation stands for a change in the way people think, feel and act in order to be able to perceive, decide and act together more effectively and efficiently. But co-creation is also an attitude: complex problems can only be solved sustainably with openness, trust and transparency. The book explains the co-creation process, which can be carried out in very different situations and time budgets, and describes the applicable formats such as Organizational Co-Creation, Daily Co-Creation, Virtual Co-Creation, Coaching Co-Creation and Leadership Co-Creation. Projects from consulting practice make it clear what you should pay attention to when introducing and implementing the co-creation process.

Co-Creation Learning

by Georg Michalik & Volker Schulte

The flipped classroom learning concept originally comes from school didactics. The “time-consuming” development phase is shifted from the classroom to the learner’s private (learning) area. The aim is to apply the knowledge acquired in preparation directly in the classroom and thus achieve greater learning success.

This book is the first to consider the learning concept for the further education sector and, with I-M-P-A-C-T, provides a concept for preparing the learning method for further education. The result is a reorganization of seminars in which participants work out the learning content independently in advance and then attend the actual seminar with their prior knowledge.

Co-Creation Mindset: Eight Steps towards the Future of Work

from Georg Michalik

Co-creation is a major trend in management, yet no one seems to truly know what it is. With numerous examples and a Q&A section, this book explains exactly what co-creation is and how it differs from other forms of collaboration.

To do so, it covers three main topics: innovation, trust and commitment. With regard to the first, co-creation creates a sense of psychological security by treating all participants as equals, the most important prerequisite for finding innovative solutions. In terms of trust, co-creation builds on individual strengths. People who believe in each other’s abilities trust each other. Lastly, co-creation allows people to arrive at win-win solutions, which is the foundation for taking personal ownership.

The book is intended for executives, HR and organizational managers, and those responsible for corporate transformation who want to implement co-creation in a very concrete way, as well as anyone interested in co-creation in general.
