“Co-creative meetings” foster invention and innovation, and therefore enable innovative developmental processes in an organizational and inter-organizational context, including strategy development, product development, human resource development, R&D, and trans-organizational projects. This book illustrates the difference between productive and innovative organizations and what that difference means for meetings taking place in such organizations, both from a conceptual and practical point of view. It provides managers, coaches, consultants and other professionals whose job it is to organize meetings with clear and action-oriented guidelines for the design of “co-creative meetings”, and also shows how to incorporate them through experiential learning.
