Crowdsourcing Disadvantages: Identifying Six Things Crowds Do Badly

Part of the Crowdsourcing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Crowds are at their best when they take the information you give them, combine it with their own experience and present you with their judgements – all good things in a collaborative environment. However, crowds do have trouble understanding the context of jobs. They can rarely see the forces that are shaping the job. With that in mind, here are six examples of things that crowds do badly:

  • Guess what you’re thinking.

  • Remember the history of your project.

  • Remember your goals.

  • Check their work.

  • Distinguish rumours from truth.

  • Make strategic decisions.
