Cultivating Collaboration and Value Cocreation in Consumption Journeys

Collaboration is an important means for value cocreation. To identify opportunities for collaboration, we examine how reflexivity enables the continuation of value cocreation throughout consumption journeys. We find opportunities to cultivate collaboration emerge through reflexive (mis)alignment, which enables the continuation of value cocreation through practice immersion, adaptation, dissolution and innovation.
