12manage Example of Co-Creation

Thank you Christoph, well put. 12manage is another example of co-creation in which 12manage is providing the infrastructure plus content (summaries of management methods), and the members are sharing and offering management know-how (through summarizing additional methods, sharing their own views/blogs, and entering forum comments and reactions such as this one).
