crowdsourcing as a business strategy 1

Think about a company with which you are affiliated or familiar and some kind of data or micro-labor need the company might have. Compose an initial response that addresses the following:

•What is the data or micro-labor need?

•Could it be crowd-sourced? How and why?

•What would be the benefits and drawbacks for crowdsourcing this particular thing?

•What would be the incentive for “the crowd” to help the company address its need?
