Coproduction

I’m in a meeting at the moment, talking about coproduction and showing my colleague how WordPress works.  It’s interesting to me in that I have been talking about L&D being a provider and here is an example of provision but with the analysis taking place up front.

The person I’m with also wants to look at how we engage a community.  This post from FeverBee interested me today, particularly this point:

Successful communities has very little to do with technology and a lot to do with developing a strong group identity.

So, some thoughts:

  • How do we identify the group’s identity?
  • Does the group we’re working with HAVE a group identity?
  • Whose role is it to create the identity or do rely on it to happen organically?

My fear is that it won’t happen; as always, your thoughts are appreciated.
