Crowdsourcing is defined as gathering insights from a large number of people outside an organization’s network to solve problems or explore new opportunities. By leveraging the power of crowdsourcing, businesses can turn the world into their R&D lab and deliver innovation in a more streamlined, effective, and efficient way.

However, simply posing a question to the crowd is not enough. Without a proven, repeatable process that converts crowdsourced ideas into implementable solutions, the key benefits of crowdsourcing – cheaper, faster, better innovation – are dramatically reduced or non-existent. That’s where Wazoku’s Challenge Driven Innovation® methodology shines. By providing a solid framework for crowdsourcing, the risks associated with this approach are significantly reduced.
