Creating Value and Finding Solutions By Using The Crowd Economy

Creating Value and Finding Solutions By Using The Crowd Economy

Date: Wednesday 14th December

Time: 2pm-3pm


Looking outside of an organisation to find value and solutions has become increasingly popular, from the use of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing to engaging in co-creation, open innovation and collaborative consumption, all of which are aspects of the crowd economy.

But to do so well, and to do so successfully can be challenging. This session aims to help you identify the opportunities available and to capture the success you seek.

Attendees will develop a full understanding of the scope, relevance, dynamics, and opportunities presented by the crowd economy regardless of sector. The session will illustrate the practicalities and approaches necessary to operate effectively in the crowd economy and the disruptive possibilities this presents for their organisation, project, practice or network. Understanding will be developed through exploration of the philosophical and technical underpinnings that have facilitated the growth of the crowd economy, and through analysis of practical examples and the use of analytical frameworks to explore the opportunities for each delegates organisation.
