Crowd-Accelerated Innovation

Chris Anderson taught me a new concept: Crowd-Accelerated Innovation.
Three thing are needed for this:

  • a (big) crowd,
  • light (open visibility)
  • and desire.
  • This is most easily achieved by utilising web video such as YouTube, where it is possible to realise global innovation. It is however my strong belief that the concept of crowd-accelerated innovation is applicable also to smaller groups such as companies, universities and other organisations. There are several reasons against openness in many organisations; it may be fear (don't upset the boss - I might lose my bonus), personal power (my knowledge gives me my position) or many other reasons. Real innovation is so much easier achieved in a truly open climate.
