InnoCentive: Creating Value in the Challenge Driven Enterprise

For those that think that crowdsourcing is about logo design competitions the debate continues about whether crowdsourcing is in fact just a fad – an exploitation of underpaid workers that will fade quickly once the perception of novelty is gone. There are others however, that have figured that there is more to crowdsourcing and that it has the potential to stir things up. So why is this and what are we talking about? I recently met with Dwayne Spradlin, President and CEO of InnoCentive who shared his strategic vision for the company.

How Gamification Drives Crowdsourcing
Tools

When Seth Priebatsch, CEO at SCVNGR, delivered his audaciously provocative presentation at TED he was talking about how to motivate the crowd when money isn’t the currency. You can call the approach of rewarding certain online behaviors (or penalizing others) 'Gamification', 'Game Mechanics', or 'Social Rewards', all are being equally banded about and are receiving lots of buzz. Whatever you call it, it’s all about the motivation of the masses...we’ll call it Gamification.

The options for presenting a range of digital incentives and rewards is theoretically infinite but the primary design elements include motivational triggers such as: positive (and possibly immediate) feedback (e.g. a sound that quickly becomes recognizable upon the successful completion of a task); noticeable advancement through the “game” upon successfully performing the work (e.g. progression to a new level); awarding points, badges, and status levels, etc. (see Gowalla, GetGlue or Foursquare).

Gamification however can be about much more than just driving online engagement by awarding users tokens that represent their various levels of achievement – some refer to this type of consumer engagement as 'Pouring Chocolate on Broccoli' (a very Germanic expression meaning to simply spice something up that is a bit boring). Used in this manner, the greater potential of using Gamification is somewhat lost.
