Distinguishing 'Crowded' Organizations from Groups and Communities: Is Three a Crowd?

Gianluigi Viscusi, Christopher L. Tucci
2015 Social Science Research Network  
In conventional wisdom on crowdsourcing, the number of people define the crowd and maximizing this number is often assumed to be the goal of any crowdsourcing exercise.  ...  We then propose a typology that may allow managers to position their companies' initiatives among four strategic types: crowd crystals, online communities, closed crowd, and open crowd driven innovation  ...  of platforms such as Innocentive, discussed in what follows for the closed crowd type in the lower right quadrant.  ...
