When community members take over (by InSites Consulting). There will always be a gap between what a consumer shares and how a researcher interprets it. This disparity is created by a cultural, generation and/or knowledge gap. These different gaps make it difficult for a researcher to put things into the right perspective. Here, community participants can help us out. By becoming our co-researcher, they can find more and new insights that would otherwise not have been captured. Customers feel empowered and honoured when they are asked to become co-researchers. There are many ways to collaborate with co-researchers. In this article, our experience with co-researchers is illustrated in three case studies from Campbell’s, Air France-KLM and Philips.
