As a new management paradigm, co-creation for creating new value through collaboration with stakeholders, including customers, distributers, suppliers, and partner organizations has been issued in the private and public organizations. To collectively create new value, effective communication tools among the interest groups should be provided. In fact, most of organizations have utilized information technology such as home pages and SNS for distributing information and respecting customer opinions. However, they are seriously experiencing in difficulty of systematic management and overlapped investment on information technology for co-creation. Thus, this study proposes the conceptual model for co-creation platform through case studies and it is verified by scenario analysis and experts. The study contributes to accumulate knowledge in the area of co-creation platform. It also defines the requirements and the functions for the design of co-creation platform for practitioners.

경영의 새로운 패러다임으로 기업과 소비자를 넘어 모든 이해관계자들이 함께 공동으로 협력하여 새로운 가치를 창출하는 Co-creation이 부각되고 있다. 공동으로 새로운 가치를 창출하기 위해서는 기업과 다양한 이해관계자들의 소통이 중요하다. 사실 기업은 소비자와의 소통을 위해 인터넷, SNS 등의 IT 기술을 활용하여 보다 효과적으로 Co-creation을 실현하기 위해 노력하고 있다. 그러나 아직까지 Co-creation을 위해 기업마다 개별적인 웹사이트나 SNS를 활용하고 있어 체계적인 관리가 어렵고 IT 기술에 대한 중복투자의 우려도 있다. 이에 본 연구에서는 사례분석을 통해 Co-creation을 더욱 쉽고 편리하게 활용할 수 있도록 Co-creation 플랫폼 개념모델을 제시하였고 이를 전문가 검증을 통해 수정 보완 하였다. 본 연구는 플랫폼에 필요한 요구사항 및 기능들을 제시하여 Co-creation 플랫폼의 설계를 위한 기초자료를 제공하였다는 점에서 공헌도가 있다.
