Details : Value co-creation is a concept by which parties, usually producer and client/customer, act together to create value through collaboration and cooperation. In complex systems, such as construction projects, it is the space between ‘equilibrium’ and ‘chaos’ that provides the opportunities for co-creation. Equilibrium and chaos are reflective of the blissful calmness and dramatic turmoil in a relationship – as in marriage. While marriage is viewed as a long term commitment conducive to cocreating a valuable life together, there are many shorter term relationships, such as the client-contractor relationship, posing challenges and opportunities for value co-creation. This CPD seminar will examine a few aspects: 1. Is value co-creation an innovative/new idea or re-inventing an old concept? (It can be either.) Is it the same as VM/VE? (No) 2. Is it not that value co-creation is fraught with issues on conflict, compromise and even culture change? (Yes; but value cocreation is attainable) 3. Is it old hat and another buzzword? (Does it matter? Act on it.)
