Why CrowdSourcing is Bad...or Great

document Crowd Creativity, Open Innovation
Summary Crowdsourcing can be a disadvantage because:
1. For the most part, the really talented architects and developers are busy with lucrative and demanding jobs. You can't open something up to crowdsourcing and expect the world to come to you.
2. The quality of the end-solution (of contests) is mostly determined by the quality of the talent pool and how well the contest is set up and managed.
3. The nature of the relationship between a crowdsourcing participant and the business is so very ephemeral, the typical person simply doesn't have the underlying motivation.
Description Crowdsourcing has some real benefits. But not all projects are cut out for crowdsourcing. Thus, the author advises that it’s best to use the right tool for the job.
