PRLog - Oct. 3, 2011 - ALBANY, Calif. -- San Francisco, CA, USA - Value Co-Creation not only describes a business management trend of jointly creating products, the term also refers to a change in orientation towards quantifying the customer experience. Value co-creation is a movement towards recognizing the perceived value experienced by the customer throughout all interactions with the product, brand and service. Product managers recognize that the value of the customer experience is much more than mere financial transactions. This discussion will uncover how value co-creation can be applied to the successful development of products and services.
