Crowdsourcing is part of open innovation trend in which more and more organizations are adapting to accelerate innovation, solve challenges and inspire ideation processes.

Many large cooperate today have pockets of expertise and knowledge scattered across locations, sites and different teams. In such organizations internal crowdsourcing is a powerful method to channel ideas and share best practices among company’s own employees. Moreover, the method stimulates and empowers employees by giving them the platform and opportunity to be creative, collaborative and lead the way in and beyond their BU.
