Crowdsourcing brings together multiple individuals to perform in concert. While crowdsourcing often refers to the sourcing of distributed workers from on-demand, cloud-based talent markets, it is also used as a method of elastically sourcing and managing employees within a company.
why is it important?
Crowdsourcing talent from on-demand talent markets can provide a business with rapid, lower-cost human judgment for work that cannot be automated. Crowdsourcing within an enterprise workforce can more intelligently route tasks to workers based on capacity and capability, which improves the speed and precision of task execution.
