Crowdsourcing is the practice of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people, typically from an online community. Big clients are entrusting strategic projects to distributed teams they have never met. How can professionals capitalize on this growing trend? Speakers include Alan MacCormack, Professor at Harvard Business School, Peter A. Gloor, Research Scientist at the Center for Collective Intelligence at MIT's Sloan School of Management, Kelly Higgins, Associate Principal, Challenge Design and Development, InnoCentive, and Kevin Redmond, Director of Digital, MMB.
