What Is Crowd Source?
Crowd Source is an innovative method to engage people and empower them to collaboratively create new things. In order to collaboratively create together you need to pick a subject and use a Crowd Source platform that will enable all the participants to share content and manage the creation process.

Process Depth – Uncovering hidden processes and attitudes
The Crowd Source process can uncover hidden processes, problems and attitudes. We may think that we know which dilemmas are bothering our employees. Our experience shows that we might be surprised. The process uncovers the employees inteerst points and shows what really bothers them.
Large organizations with branched organizational structure, with many groups and with a variety of functions have many dilemmas that are unique to a location, a group or a function. A generic approach creates a barrier between the participants and the topic of the training or the organizational process. If the gap between the participants world and the content of the training widens – the barrier employees have to cross when they try to map learning to their real life becomes bigger. This gap is hard to overcome. It requires complex skills. As a result we may have a good feeling at the end of a training session – after all we touched tough issues and learned – but the actual impact in the field is insignificant. Our Crowd Source solves the problem of customizing the content for each group.
Our team of experts will analyze and segment the content that is collected and will prepare computerized reports for you. The reports will show attitudes and processes that are taking place in the organization. The reports will allow you to compare between various groups and have a different action plan for each group.
