  • 5. Crowdsourcing<br />Defined<br />Crowdsourcing is an engagement process whereby organizations seek input from either open or closed communities of people, either homogenous or not, to contribute ideas, solutions, or support in an open process whereby the elements of creativity, competition and campaigning are reinforced through social media to come up with more powerful ideas or solutions than could be obtained through other means.<br />Why Bother?<br />Organizations have a difficult time engaging with their communities to strengthen their relationship and be customer/citizen focused. Internal or external, the community has ideas that can be harnessed that come from diverse backgrounds, experiences and education. <br />2<br />

Crowdsourcing works best if:<br />4<br />Focuses on a well-stated challenge<br />Links to clear, well-articulated outcomes<br />Balances input from ‘non-experts’ with guidance from ‘experts’<br />Targets communities with particular perspective or experience, rather than general crowds<br />Makes clear how participating will be valuable to the crowd<br />
  • 12. Example 1 – Product Development - Branded<br />IdeaStorm was created to give a direct voice to Dell’s customers and an avenue to have online “brainstorm” sessions to allow them to share ideas and collaborate with one another and Dell. Their goal through IdeaStorm is to hear what new products or services you’d like to see Dell develop.<br />In almost three years, IdeaStorm has crossed the 10,000 idea mark and implemented nearly 400 ideas! <br />6<br />
