Emotional Value of Co-Creation: Can Co-Creation of a Service Recovery Defuse Customers’ Anger?

This study examines 1) whether co-creation of recovery outperforms a traditional firm-driven recovery in reducing customers’ anger caused by a service failure, and 2) a condition under which such effect fades away (i.e., when compensation is offered simultaneously). The online scenario-based experiment confirmed the assertion of this study.
