Crowdsourcing
A new way of sourcing people or
crowds who are willing to help with or
work on a project in the form of an
open call.
“Crowdsourcing” was coined by Jeff
Howe in 2006 in a wired article titled
“the rise of crowdsourcing”
• Using many disparate individuals to perform services, generate
ideas or opinions or information
• Practice of engaging a ‘crowd’ or group for a common goal —
often innovation, problem solving, or efficiency.
• Distributed problem solving. The basic idea is to tap into the
collective intelligence of the public at large to complete business-
related tasks that a company would normally either perform itself
or outsource to a third-party provider.

History
of
the
concept
“Crowdsourcing”
Rebirth of amateurs
• These are people that
are skilled n solving the
problem but lack the
academic qualification
to be recognized as a
professional.
• Empowered the crowd
to take part in a process
long dominated by
companies.
Open source software
development
• Its emergence provides
a blueprint.
• The use of open source
code, is completely open
for anyone to see, copy
or modify as they see fit.
• The availability of the
Internet is a worthwhile
building block.
Tools/means of
production
• The increase availability
of these tools enables
crowdsourcing to be
freely available to
everyone.
• People have gained
access to cheap
equipment, user-friendly
software and cost-free
distribution channels for
publishing, filmmaking,
photography, music, etc.
People’s shared interest
• Rise of vibrant self-
organized communities
focused on people’s
shared interest.
• The emergence of online
communities with the
capacity to organize
people into
economically productive
units is what breathes
life and vitality into
these components
These fundamental developments created the environment where crowdsourcing is
feasible and unavoidable.
Make it Real
ReasonsWhy
ItWorks
Crowdsourcing draws from a global
pool of talent, much of which has never
before been tapped effectively.
Crowdsourcing allows genuine ideology to
emerge – where people are acknowledged for
the quality of their ideas rather than for their
formal academic qualifications.
Uses the power of today’s communication
technologies to liberate the potential which
exists in large pools of people.
Offering cash prizes for best ideas, asking
for new product ideas, running prediction
markets
Make it Real
Present
Achievements
Collective intelligence
The idea a crowd of people acting in
concert can make a better decision
than any individual could ever have
managed.
People voted to elect their
governments.
The Internet, however, facilitates
collective intelligence very efficiently
e.g. Internet-based suggestion box.
Production of mass creative works
User generated contents e.g
Wikipedia, you tube.
In Africa, we have ushahidi.com
that was used to monitor the
2002 Kenya elections.
Crowd’s collective pocketbook
Progress to crowdfunding. People
can also come together to pool
their money and do interesting
things.
Make it Real
Platform
• Mobile
devices
• Social
media
• Operating
System
• Internet
 Technology is making everything
cheaper, faster, smaller and easier to
use.
 All of this is having the combined
effect of placing creative power in the
hands of the crowd rather than in the
hands of professionals.
 Mobile platforms are perfect for
crowdfunding.
 The ubiquity of smart phones and the
relative ease with which apps can be
created and shared makes mobile a
natural platform.
 Increasing number of companies,
nonprofits, and individuals have been
integrating crowdsourcing platforms
into daily life and business models
alike.

Value
Gives access to an essentially unlimited pool of talent and increases capabilities. Particularly relevant to research &
development teams looking to develop new ideas or gather efficiency and sustaining ideas
Serves as a competitive edge for organizations that use their skills and competencies to draw on external crowd,
tapping the best ideas from their internal crowds compares to those organizations that rely solely on their
internal resources and traditional services.
Increase flexibility. Offers a chance to develop new software and data management strategies aimed at
assisting other companies looking for stronger solutions to manage crowdsourcing projects on their own.
Important for startups or companies about starting new ventures. They can draw on the resources they need
to establish the project, of which if it works can be scalable else dropped.
Reduce costs: Substituting expensive professional service firms with lower cost service providers, ensuring
simple, low-level tasks are not being done by high-cost internal staff, and lowering the costs involved in
innovation and product development
For a variety of supportive tasks, such as testing new software or previewing training manuals for clarity,
crowdsourcing provides a wide array of helpful feedback to make new products or services. Turns users to
product ideas by skillfully leveraging on user engagement.
Software developers could engage clientele who use their product most for ideas related to new features that would help
the company address user needs more effectively.
Make it Real
Strategies
 Pick the right model - Before you launch anything,
first figure out what you’re trying to achieve and
then look at what is the best way to do that.
 Pick the right crowd - You’ll probably need only
about five thousand active users over the billion of
people with internet access. to make your business
model work. Therefore, be choosy.
 Offer the right incentives - Understand what
people want when they agree to get involved and
give them precisely that – whether it’s personal
glory, the chance to interact with like-minded peers,
the opportunity to acquire new skills, cash rewards is
the key to keeping the crowd happy.
 The community is always right.
 Find benevolent dictators - Provide your online community
someone to provide direction and guidance to keep things on
track. A good thought leader.
 Keep things simple- People are busy. You will increase their
likelihood of participating if what’s required is
straightforward and can be fitted into a few spare minutes.
 Split big jobs into smaller task.
 Be prepared for fluff - Anticipate most of the stuff that
comes in will be below acceptable standards.
 Look for diamonds in the rough- Make it feasible for the
crowd to help you find the diamonds in the rough which will
exist in all the material you receive.

Issues
•Intellectual property and copyright issues commonly arise in crowdsourcing.
•Crowdsourcing organizations must also remain vigilant against potential violations of third party content that is
submitted to crowdsourcing competitions.
•Quality control/ data quality- trust, reliability, spam detection.
•Needs critical mass, motivation, ownership and authorship.
•Vandalism, hidden agendas
•Labor exploitation, unpaid labor.
•Presumed as digital slavery.
•Feasibility, desirability and usefulness
•A crowd dissatisfied with a crowdsourcing organization is free to leave, and a large enough exit can cause the
crowdsourcing application to collapse entirely.
•Participants are often in competition with one another for the work, there may not be great communication
among participants without significant planning on the part of the organization providing the work.
•Task that requires sophisticated knowledge and intense time management can become a burden and might not
be ideal for crowdsourcing.
•Crowdsourcing is not yet widely adopted by researchers for generating, processing or analyzing research data.
•Crowdsourcing is a nascent tool for streamlining the process of gathering, processing and analyzing research data
in many fields. Researchers have concerns for process, data, knowledge, delegation and quality uncertainties.

Conclusion
 Crowdsourcing software is an online platform that allows for the
collection of great ideas and for collaboration around their idea
development.
 It automates the parts of the crowdsourcing process that no longer
require manually sorting.
 There are several crowdsourcing software with a variety of feature set.
 Businesses make money from selling the crowdsourcing software
they develop through different pricing plans and not from the
crowd.
 Overall idea of a business interested in having a crowdsourcing platform is to
generate ideas for developing innovative products which will eventually yield
profit.
 While it is good to build a crowdsourcing platform, it is preferable to first
leverage on existing platforms to study their features. Variety of feature set for
different platforms based on needs. Understanding this can later help us in
building ours.

Make it Real Definition 3 crowd outsourcing Crowdsourcing A new way of sourcing people or crowds who are willing to help with or work on a project in the form of an open call. “Crowdsourcing” was coined by Jeff Howe in 2006 in a wired article titled “the rise of crowdsourcing” • Using many disparate individuals to perform services, generate ideas or opinions or information • Practice of engaging a ‘crowd’ or group for a common goal — often innovation, problem solving, or efficiency. • Distributed problem solving. The basic idea is to tap into the collective intelligence of the public at large to complete business- related tasks that a company would normally either perform itself or outsource to a third-party provider. Selected Definitions

Democratization. Creativity Distributed task. Presents a problem to the public, hoping it sends back a viable solution. Digital suggestion box. Quantity objective is key. Needs a clear action e.g let’s solve this problem together Rigid workforce Networked creativity and innovation. Engage participants in a creative process to co develop an optimal solution. Quality objective is key. Engagement Promoted events. Transactional. A relationship with the brand. It can enable wisdom of the crowd. Key conditions: diversity of opinion, Independence, decentralization and aggregation. Meaningful. Varity drives regular participants. The relationship is the brand. Insight Short-term feedback on past and present. Long term feed back is given to monitor progress and get quality. Longitudinal research confidence. Observational, tacit insights to fuel innovation.

  • 5. Make it Real History of the concept “Crowdsourcing” Rebirth of amateurs • These are people that are skilled n solving the problem but lack the academic qualification to be recognized as a professional. • Empowered the crowd to take part in a process long dominated by companies. Open source software development • Its emergence provides a blueprint. • The use of open source code, is completely open for anyone to see, copy or modify as they see fit. • The availability of the Internet is a worthwhile building block. Tools/means of production • The increase availability of these tools enables crowdsourcing to be freely available to everyone. • People have gained access to cheap equipment, user-friendly software and cost-free distribution channels for publishing, filmmaking, photography, music, etc. People’s shared interest • Rise of vibrant self- organized communities focused on people’s shared interest. • The emergence of online communities with the capacity to organize people into economically productive units is what breathes life and vitality into these components These fundamental developments created the environment where crowdsourcing is feasible and unavoidable.
  • 6. Make it Real ReasonsWhy ItWorks Crowdsourcing draws from a global pool of talent, much of which has never before been tapped effectively. Crowdsourcing allows genuine ideology to emerge – where people are acknowledged for the quality of their ideas rather than for their formal academic qualifications. Uses the power of today’s communication technologies to liberate the potential which exists in large pools of people. Offering cash prizes for best ideas, asking for new product ideas, running prediction markets
  • 7. Make it Real Present Achievements Collective intelligence The idea a crowd of people acting in concert can make a better decision than any individual could ever have managed. People voted to elect their governments. The Internet, however, facilitates collective intelligence very efficiently e.g. Internet-based suggestion box. Production of mass creative works User generated contents e.g Wikipedia, you tube. In Africa, we have ushahidi.com that was used to monitor the 2002 Kenya elections. Crowd’s collective pocketbook Progress to crowdfunding. People can also come together to pool their money and do interesting things.
  • 8. Make it Real Platform • Mobile devices • Social media • Operating System • Internet  Technology is making everything cheaper, faster, smaller and easier to use.  All of this is having the combined effect of placing creative power in the hands of the crowd rather than in the hands of professionals.  Mobile platforms are perfect for crowdfunding.  The ubiquity of smart phones and the relative ease with which apps can be created and shared makes mobile a natural platform.  Increasing number of companies, nonprofits, and individuals have been integrating crowdsourcing platforms into daily life and business models alike.

  • 15. Make it Real Strategies  Pick the right model - Before you launch anything, first figure out what you’re trying to achieve and then look at what is the best way to do that.  Pick the right crowd - You’ll probably need only about five thousand active users over the billion of people with internet access. to make your business model work. Therefore, be choosy.  Offer the right incentives - Understand what people want when they agree to get involved and give them precisely that – whether it’s personal glory, the chance to interact with like-minded peers, the opportunity to acquire new skills, cash rewards is the key to keeping the crowd happy.  The community is always right.  Find benevolent dictators - Provide your online community someone to provide direction and guidance to keep things on track. A good thought leader.  Keep things simple- People are busy. You will increase their likelihood of participating if what’s required is straightforward and can be fitted into a few spare minutes.  Split big jobs into smaller task.  Be prepared for fluff - Anticipate most of the stuff that comes in will be below acceptable standards.  Look for diamonds in the rough- Make it feasible for the crowd to help you find the diamonds in the rough which will exist in all the material you receive.

  • 17. Make it Real Issues •Intellectual property and copyright issues commonly arise in crowdsourcing. •Crowdsourcing organizations must also remain vigilant against potential violations of third party content that is submitted to crowdsourcing competitions. •Quality control/ data quality- trust, reliability, spam detection. •Needs critical mass, motivation, ownership and authorship. •Vandalism, hidden agendas •Labor exploitation, unpaid labor. •Presumed as digital slavery. •Feasibility, desirability and usefulness •A crowd dissatisfied with a crowdsourcing organization is free to leave, and a large enough exit can cause the crowdsourcing application to collapse entirely. •Participants are often in competition with one another for the work, there may not be great communication among participants without significant planning on the part of the organization providing the work. •Task that requires sophisticated knowledge and intense time management can become a burden and might not be ideal for crowdsourcing. •Crowdsourcing is not yet widely adopted by researchers for generating, processing or analyzing research data. •Crowdsourcing is a nascent tool for streamlining the process of gathering, processing and analyzing research data in many fields. Researchers have concerns for process, data, knowledge, delegation and quality uncertainties.
  • 18. Make it Real Conclusion  Crowdsourcing software is an online platform that allows for the collection of great ideas and for collaboration around their idea development.  It automates the parts of the crowdsourcing process that no longer require manually sorting.  There are several crowdsourcing software with a variety of feature set.  Businesses make money from selling the crowdsourcing software they develop through different pricing plans and not from the crowd.  Overall idea of a business interested in having a crowdsourcing platform is to generate ideas for developing innovative products which will eventually yield profit.  While it is good to build a crowdsourcing platform, it is preferable to first leverage on existing platforms to study their features. Variety of feature set for different platforms based on needs. Understanding this can later help us in building ours.
