Crowdsourcing Is Not a Numbers Game

Crowdsourcing Is Not a Numbers Game | Security News | Scoop.it

It may seem counterintuitive, but too much participation can ruin your crowdsourcing efforts. Focus on careful curation rather than a cattle call. Even the best companies have blind spots. It may even be true that the bigger the company, the larger and more potentially damaging its blind spot. To offset this, firms are increasingly turning to crowdsourcing, in hopes that outsiders will pinpoint innovative solutions or ideas that are difficult to see from within the organisation. And since you never know where the next great idea will come from, it’s best to be as indiscriminate and open-ended as possible when soliciting suggestions from the crowd — or so many companies seem to think. However, there are two serious problems that arise when crowdsourcing becomes an open invitation. The first is obvious: As the pool of crowdsourced content increases, it becomes harder to give each contribution the attention it may or may not deserve. You could end up overwhelmed, up to your neck in mostly-unusable ideas. But on top of that, my research uncovered a second factor that may cast doubt on the innovation potential of cattle-call crowdsourcing.

Why Innovation Eats Strategy for Breakfast

Why Innovation Eats Strategy for Breakfast | Security News | Scoop.it

To win in these challenging times, innovation has become your most powerful source of competitive advantage. Playing yesterday's game--even with brilliant strategy--is no match for the hurricane strength winds of creative disruption. Today, an entirely new set of skills and approaches are required to succeed. Simply put: innovation eats strategy for breakfast.

A Predictive Analytics Primer

A Predictive Analytics Primer | Security News | Scoop.it
No one has the ability to capture and analyze data from the future. However, there is a way to predict the future using data from the past. It’s called predictive analytics, and organizations do it every day. By understanding a few basics, you will feel more comfortable working with and communicating with others in your organization about the results and recommendations from predictive analytics. The quantitative analysis isn’t magic—but it is normally done with a lot of past data, a little statistical wizardry, and some important assumptions. Let’s talk about each of these. (Tom Davenport)

Three Convergent Thinking Techniques Every Analyst Should Master

Three Convergent Thinking Techniques Every Analyst Should Master | Security News | Scoop.it
driven many of the changes in the way intelligence analysts do their jobs. Fundamental to these changes were (and are) attempts to get analysts to think differently. Specifically, most of the discussion and many of the efforts were aimed at increasing divergent thinking abilities among intelligence professionals. Red teaming, brainstorming, and the ubiquitous informal encouragement to "think outside the box" are all, to one degree or another divergent thinking strategies. There are good reasons, however, for analysts to master the flip side of divergent thinking - convergent thinking -- as well. There is quite a bit of excellent research that suggests that having a strong divergent thinking skillset is not enough. In fact, the research goes further. Having only strong divergent thinking skills likely lowers forecasting accuracy..
