Dolores Labs, renamed CrowdFlower in January 2010, was founded by Biewald in and Chis Van Pelt in 2007, and quickly became one of the most reputable firms utilizing Amazon's Mechanical Turk platform.

Changing the Paradigm: uTest’s Model for Crowd Management

uTest announce today three community-driven programs that may represent a paradigm change in mechanisms that drive worker performance.  While the advantages of crowdsourcing to leverage a distributed virtual on-demand labor pool, to fulfill a range of tasks from simple to complex appear apparent, it seems the model is not without flaw. Numbers of staff can be ramped-up for a fee or turned off, typically without incremental cost. However, there are challenges managing a workforce that isn’t dedicated and not paid to turn up to work at 9am each day. So how do you optimize a workforce that works voluntarily?  I spoke with Matt Johnston, uTest’s CMO, who shared some insights into their leading-edge approaches for worker management in a crowdsourcing environment.

Crowdsourcing and the new marketing

Crowdsourcing is clearly not going away. Any company that believes it can operate with a closed-walls philosophy is missing the point of social business. The crowd, or groups external to the firm, provide interesting, sometimes path-breaking, sometimes huge numbers of ideas, insights and solutions. Crowdsourcing is part of the future of making and selling things. No question.

Still, there are a couple of questions niggling away at the back of my mind. There are more than two but these two beg an answer.

The first is how do we improve crowdsourcing? We know it's better than relying solely on internal resources for a variety of tasks, from routine to innovatory, but if crowdsourcing is to become a fixed operational resource, a part of the furniture so to speak, then we need to know how to measure and improve the process. That's akin to saying how do we professionalise it.

The second question is where does it lead us to? CNN recently announced it will upgrade its iReport crowdsourced news services. The end result will be a social network for news, a community that simultaneously creates, distributes and consumes news. This makes perfect sense. We are already blurring the line between production, marketing and consumption but we need to think where this is headed in other segments of the market.
