Bridging Mass Customization and Open Innovation - MCPC 2011

 

Conference logo wide 

The MCPC conference series started out in 2001 as a bi-annual conference devoted to mass customization & personalization. The content has broadened in recent years, including also customer co-creation, user innovation, and other strategies of customer-driven value creation (hence, MCPC = Mass Customization, Personalization, and Co-Creation"). In 2011, the conference will bridge MCPC with a topic that has driven and inspired the field since several years: open innovation.

Extending Open Innovation to Open Government: a Roadmap for New Opportunities in Citizensourcing
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Tapping the Innovative Masses
The case for and against crowdsourcing (part 1)

Articles on crowdsourcing seem to spread one message: every firm should use the ‘power of the mass’ by tapping into a global pool of online voluntary resources. I do not deny that crowdsourcing is a beneficial concept to a number of firms, but there is also a different story to tell. I have observed that little or no attention has been paid to the drawbacks of crowdsourcing. These disadvantages result in unexpected costs that have the potential to wipe out some or all of the benefits of crowdsourcing.


In the first part of this article I describe which types of crowdsourcing currently exist and the benefits of crowdsourcing. In the second part (published tomorrow), I explore some of the drawbacks of crowdsourcing.

Open Innovation, Tools

Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is a term for tangible artifacts -- machines, devices, or other physical things -- whose design has been released to the public in such a way that anyone can make, modify, distribute, and use those things. The official version of the "Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Statement of Principles and Definition v1.0" has now been published. This publication can be seen as profound and game-changing as the original "Open Source Definition," created by Bruce Perens and the Debian developers as  the "Debian Free Software Guidelines" in 1997.
