MetadataShow full item record
Doctoral dissertation contributes theoretically and empirically to the research stream of co-creation by focusing on the ICT-enabled collective actions of citizens, communities, governmental organizations, business entities, NGOs and other stakeholders in the creation of public value. The object of the research is the public value co-creation in Lithuanian and international civic technology platforms. The goal of the research was to propose an ICT-Enabled Co-Creative Ecosystem model aimed at the development of public value. Theoretical aspects of ICT-enabled public value co-creation were examined using meta-analysis, comparative analysis and generalization methods of related scientific research. The empirical investigations were based on phenomenological research strategy and qualitative research triangulation approach. Three complementary empirical studies have been conducted – expert interviews, mapping and qualitative content analysis of Lithuanian civic technology platforms and comparative content analysis of international civic technology platforms. The completed research activities allowed to build an in-depth working knowledge of the public value co-creation domain and its performance, outputs and impacts. In the light of the main observations that have emerged from the design of ICT-Enabled Co-Creative Ecosystem Model, it has become possible to develop recommendations aimed at increasing the co-creative capacities of governmental, private and civic entities.
