Crowd Sourcing Workshop

When:

Thursday, April 17, 2014, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Where:

4747 Troost Ave., Kansas City MO map...

Description:

When you combine the concept of outsourcing with the power of Internet-connected individuals, you have Crowd Sourcing. Companies are using crowd sourcing to raise funds for start-ups, get product ideas for the next line of merchandise, and to solve problems that seem too big for the organization.

How can your company utilize crowd sourcing? In this workshop we will explore the following “crowd” topics and discuss how you can take advantage of this new technology-enabled workforce: Crowd Funding and Capital Raising, Crowd Creativity and Idea/Content Generation, Crowd Wisdom, Problem-solving and Decision-making, and Crowd Work.

We’ll also discuss how to get your organization “crowd sourcing ready” so that when you find the right problem for this solution, you can jump right in with confidence.

This workshop will be taught by Doug Allen, President of Allen's Consulting. Lunch will be provided.
