The concept, called “crowdsourcing”, can be a quick and accurate creative resource for both companies and individuals, and it’s gaining a lot of momentum in the market place. It works by taking a job that is traditionally performed by one person, usually an employee, and putting it out to a larger, undefined group for contributions.
