No Office? 4 Secrets for Managing Virtual Workers
Do employee Management Principles Apply to Crowdsourcing?
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Is crowdourcing scalable? Yes. Powerful enabler of a successful business if developed the right way, absolutely! Awesome pool of cheap labor? Not so much. My guess is that anyone working in a (successful) business that is designed around or at least is heavily reliant upon crowdsourcing, feels that the crowd isn’t cheap labor. On a practical basis this sentiment is easily evolved into the well-intentioned mantra you can hear echoing through the halls here at Trada, “the crowd doesn’t work for us… don’t ever treat   them like they do!  We work for them!”

Crowdsourcing: The New Comparative Advantage?

In a world changing so quickly, new models for work will and must emerge. Growing labor forces in India and China, democratic expansions that allows more individual choice, lower friction in work moving across the globe in milliseconds instead of months, and more interconnected people and problems -- all drive the need for more than just subtle shifts in collaboration and creation. The cutting edge -- where technology like "the cloud" and virtual goods themselves are invented, constructed, and consumed -- must be a leader in this change.

Is crowdsourcing dead? How creative crowdsourcing platforms evolve

When Jeff Howe coined the term crowdsourcing back in 2006, he defined it as  »the act of a company or institution taking a function once performed by employees and outsourcing it to an undefined (and generally large) network of people in the form of an open call » (this definition is still on Wikipedia). Today, other buzzwords like co-creation and open innovation flood the marketing and innovation blogs. To know what’s happening with crowdsourcing, let’s just take a look at how the platforms based on crowdsourcing principles evolve. Let’s take a look at different types of platforms using crowdsourcing principles : virtual ad agencies, creativity platforms and (still) the crowd-sourcers.

VIRTUAL AD AGENCIES


I recently found an interesting blog post about discussing well-known crowdsourcing websites. Peter La Motte, president of GeniusRocket, describes how his websites’ model is not an open crowdsouring platform anymore, but rather « an agency powered by the crowd «. This means that ideas and storyboards are crowdsourced, but they only go into production when the client has given feedback and approves the project. This is the main difference with open platforms like Poptent or eYeka, who are open platforms for various creative people who can choose which projects they want to participate in. Other virtual ad agencies include Victors&Spoils, founded by John Winsor (a review of his book Flipped here), and Tongal. I like Tongal’s video because it explains how the crowd is leveraged to select and refine ideas:

Crowdsourced Ideas Make Participating in Government Cool Again

Harnessing the knowledge citizens and government employees share on social media applications in the public sector is a tricky challenge of the Government 2.0 era. Every day, thousands of citizens comment on government Facebook posts and blog entries or reshare information published on Twitter. Rarely has government had the opportunity to harvest innovative ideas and knowledge published through these channels. The main reason many agencies set up an organizational account is still “to be where the people are.” Recently, ‘open innovation’ platforms have started to address this disconnect, providing the public with the capability to interact and brainstorm alongside government officials. Simply put, these platforms make participating in government cool again.

Social media tools — such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook — are great channels to collect and encourage citizens to provide their insights on the issues and plans of government. Unfortunately, today’s standard social networking services do not have the capability to automatically extract and collate new knowledge or ideas from content that citizens are submitting through the existing commenting channels. In some cases, the sheer volume of comments makes proper analysis very difficult. The challenge is to extract new ideas or valuable insights from the influx of comments in a productive and efficient way. Open innovation platforms are designed to fill this gap.
