World Co-creation Day is being celebrated every year on August 8, the birthday of late Prof C K Prahalad, who is credited with coining the word, "co-creation", and proposing a deeper level of partnership between businesses and consumers, in an article he co-authored with Prof Venkat Ramaswamy, for the Harvard Business Review, in 2000.
