We propose a conceptual framework from a critical relatioal perspective to better understand the process of co-production. The argument advanced here is twofold: First, that leadership must be shared to some extend for co-production to take effect and that this highlights the importance of relational dynamics in the exploration of the co-production process. Second, to develop models of leadership which reflect the nature of the co-production process we need to explore the extent to which power and institutional structure influence co-production.
