Designing Technology Platforms for Collective Co-Production: Advice When Selecting Crowdsourcing Platforms
How should the technology platform look like in order to unmindcuff the crowd in a way that collective production occurs? Since our initial search for technology platforms did not turn up any platforms that unmindcuffed the crowd, we describe the crowdsourcing platform interface which should be in place, which can make the difference between a less productive Idea-Sharing crowd and a crowd with the capability of collectively producing innovative ideas. We frame our guidance in terms of design principles, that is, guidelines for ensuring that the platform will promote collective production.
