CrowdConf2011: How the Indian Outsourcing Model Paves the Way for Enterprise Crowdsourcing
Cloud Labor, Open Innovation, Tools

There is no question in my mind that crowdsourcing is a provocative model that will re-shape and augment more established forms of sourcing. It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but rather how large a disruption will amass — and how quickly.

While the model seems new, it has much in common with more established models — and as such, we have case history that we can learn from that will help us accelerate the wholesale adoption of crowdsourcing.


Let’s take a look at the outsourcing industry in India. How the Indians conquered outsourcing is a model we can replicate to establish the broad adoption of crowdsourcing. Back in the 1990’s, the Indian outsourcers weren’t considered as competition for the large national or global ITO and BPO providers.
