Value Creation and Consumption: When Consumer Creativity Generates Value in Online Forums

We argue that value creation results from consumer creativity, a socio-cultural phenomenon which is inherent in all acts of consumption. We explore consumer creativity using conversation analysis in an online forum and show how consumers integrate resources to create value. Consumer creativity can be encouraged and harnessed by managers.
