Preface to the Co-Creation Paradigm
For a long time, people believed that the sun revolved around the earth because it was the sun that rose and set every day. A paradigm shift occurred with the realization that the earth revolved around the sun. Something similar is underway in our social, business, and civic systems. Individuals were seen as revolving around firms and institutions. We were pockets of demand, rising and setting around supply. This is no longer true. Individuals, not institutions, are now at the center of value creation.
