This paper presents the first analysis of the way that co-creation can be used as the primary approach to problem-solving within organisations that operate a public value model of strategic management (co-created public value). We begin by drawing from previous scholarship to introduce a preliminary model of three activities required to co-create public value: defining public value, mobilizing support, and building capacity. After introducing the context of our empirical case and the research methods, we present our research findings as an elaborated model that illustrates ways that each of the three activities can be performed. We conclude by considering the research and practical implications of our model.
