Is Crowd-sourcing the Enemy of Innovation?

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • Robson Grieve

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

The great democratization called crowd-sourcing is quickly becoming a debilitating hurdle for innovation. Without an understanding of how to use public opinion, C-suite officers are ditching vision and conviction and risk turning critical business decisions into popularity contests. Do “we, the people” have too much power? How should you use the crowd?
