The police in Denmark have made a strategic intent to engage and activate external stakeholders in crime prevention efforts. However, knowledge of how to unfold the potential of such multi-stakeholder, co-creation-based business models is scarce. The current study was initiated to explore the roles of design thinking and strategic visualization in designing for multi-stakeholder, co-creation-based business models. The study is based on the design, execution and results of a workshop with the Danish police in which almost 100 innovation professionals worked on designing solutions for crime prevention challenges identified and put forth by the Danish police. The article points to how design thinking and strategic visualization can be essential vehicles in realizing the potential of co-creation-based business models by allowing for emergence, while at the same time creating clarity that potentially leads to a productive reframing of the targeted challenge.
