The Wisdom of Crowds
I just came across these videos on youtube about the creative and productive power of the masses (similar to Friedman’s book, “The World is Flat”). The speaker, Barry Libert (CEO of Mzinga), sheds light on the reality that communities of people (aka customers) drive ideas and grow companies… and not necessarily the experts.
I appreciated the emphasis on open-source idea formation and community involvement. I think there are definitely possible implications here for the formation and development of organizations like non-profits, agencies, schools and churches. Love to hear your thoughts.
