  1. 1. Crowdsourcing … when the crowd brings the solution
  2. 3. Definition <ul><li>Crowdsourcing comes from two words: crowd and outsourcing. </li></ul><ul><li>It's defined as a new way to outsource tasks to many persons (the crowd) through an open call, instead of working with contractors or external firms. </li></ul>
  3. 4. The crowdsourcing process groups several steps: <ul><li>1- the firm has a problem </li></ul><ul><li>2- it broadcast it on the web </li></ul><ul><li>3- the users try to resolve this problem and submits their work </li></ul><ul><li>4- the firm votes on the best work and decide to implement it </li></ul><ul><li>5- the user who did this work is rewarded </li></ul><ul><li>6- the firm owns several solutions to create many scenarios </li></ul><ul><li>7- the firm makes huge profits </li></ul>
  4. 5. Business Model of ELANCE.com <ul><li>Elance is a crowdsourcing website which try to match freelancers with employers. </li></ul><ul><li>Freelancers provide their expertise in several fields (web programming ...etc) while employers ask for work to fulfill their needs. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Business Model of ELANCE.com <ul><li>The employer get many requests from many users and these experts start working on the defined task. </li></ul><ul><li>The employer monitors several projects and decides at the end which one it will implement. </li></ul><ul><li>The users whose projects weren't accepted won't get paid while the chosen project's owner will get a remuneration. </li></ul>

  9. 10. Employers <ul><li>Disadvantages </li></ul><ul><li>1- the freelancer isn't motivated as the employees of the company </li></ul><ul><li>2- the freelancer won't work on the project the way an employee will do it: details might be omitted </li></ul>

  11. 12. Conclusion <ul><li>Crowdsourcing aims to provide several solutions, several points of view to the company. It engages the people. It supports the democratization concerning the chosen solutions and it works as a brainstorming session. </li></ul><ul><li>Crowdsourcing helps the company get more innovative ideas from the crowd (the consumers) and launch products with less marketing efforts. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex: DEWmocracy from Mountain Dew where the consumers worked on the packaging of the product, its taste, its colors ...etc </li></ul>
