Stine Degnegaard defends the dissertation Co-Creation for Impact How to design multi-stakeholder initiatives for tackling wicked problems. The defence takes place Monday 4 March 2019, at 13:00 in Aud. 90.1.20, building 90, Fabrikmestervej 6, 1437 Copenhagen K.


The current study is a contribution to practice as well as to theory in the emerging fields of co-creation, strategic visualization and design science research. Over the course of the past four years, the research that is unfolded in this Ph.D. dissertation has tapped into a

collection of cases, described and discussed in four articles, published in peer-reviewed journals.

The Ph.D. study sets out to explore how to unlock seemingly unsolvable societal and

business challenges and co-create sustainable and impactful solutions. It does so through an exploration of the nature of the co-creation challenges in the cases and through the

development and application of a co-creation initiative design framework.

Thus, the nature of this study correlates with its content in that it is both a study and an active engagement. On the one hand, the focus of the research has been studies of the main cases in this Ph.D. to extract and deduct knowledge and insights from the endeavors of the cases. On the other hand, this study has played an active role in contributing to practice by exploring and developing the cases though active engagement. In this juxtaposition of theory and practice, thinking and doing, this study has cross-pollinated academic knowledge and methodologies for practice.

To sum the conclusion of this study, there are a number of relevant findings to the field of study. Along with such findings are a few essential insights that ought to be pointed out as main contributions: Firstly, there are three levels of co-creation to understand and consider when embarking on co-creation: a societal, an organizational and an individual level.

Secondly, setting up co-creation initiatives calls for novel methods for identifying, inviting and engaging relevant sectorial actors. Thirdly, co-creation initiatives will lead to a mindset shift of the leaders and employees working in co-creation initiatives.

These core insights that have been highlighted above cater to academia and to practice.

However, an additional finding that is uniquely essential to academia and to the theory of the current fields should be highlighted. This insight points to how development within this field in academia pulls towards a trajectory of an inter-organizational and cross-sectoral approach to problem-solving.

Dansk resume

Denne Ph.D.-afhandling har over en periode på fire år studeret en række udvalgte cases, som er præsenteret og diskuteret i fire artikler, som alle er publiceret i internationale double-blind peer- reviewede forskningstidsskrifter. Studiet bidrager til både praksis og teori inden for co-creation, strategisk visualisering og design science research.

Ph.D. studiet undersøger, hvordan det er muligt at løsne op for samfundsmæssige og forretningsmæssige udfordringer, som tilsyneladende er ’gordiske knuder’ ved at co-create bæredygtige løsninger med effekt på de respektive områder. Studiets undersøgelser baseres på arbejdet med cases og udvikling og applikation af rammeværktøjer for at designe co- creation initiativer.

I sin natur korrelerer studiet med dets indhold ved på samme tid at være et undersøgende studie og at aktivt engageret. På den ene side har forskningen søgt at udlede indsigter i Ph.D.’ens cases. På den anden side har forskningsstudiet spillet en aktiv rolle ved at bidrage til udviklingen af de respektive cases gennem aktiv involvering. I denne juxtaposition af teori og praksis, tænkning og handling, skaber studiet en krydsbefrugtning mellem akademisk viden og metoder for praksis.

På tværs af studiets cases og undersøgelser fremstår nogle enkelte substantielle indsigter af særlig betydning for feltet ud fra de delstudier og artikler, som er præsenteret gennem Ph.D.-afhandlingen. Her fremhæves tre gennemgående, konkluderende indsigter:

For det første kan fremhæves, at der er tre niveauer, som er afgørende at forstå og tage i betragtning i co-creation. Et samfundsmæssigt niveau, et organisatorisk og et individuelt niveau.

For det andet understreges betydningen af en ny metodisk tilgang til at kunne identificere, invitere og engagere tværsektorielle aktører ind i initiativet.

Sidst, men ikke af mindst betydning, konkluderes i studiet, at co-creation initiativer medfører et ændret mindset for ledere og medarbejdere, som arbejder på co-creation initiativer. De enkelte konkluderende indsigter præsenteres og diskuteres i Ph.D.- afhandlingen.

Disse kerne-indsigter bidrager såvel til det akademiske felt og til praksis. Der er dog stadig 3/4


en tilbageværende indsigt, som har særligt betydning for den forskningsmæssigt teoretiske udvikling på området. Denne afsluttende konkluderende indsigt er, at co-creation feltet bevæger sig i retning af inter-organisatorisk og tværsektorielle tilgange til problemløsning.
