Wise Crowding – Have You Tried It Yet?
What do you mean no! I must admit that Wise Crowding is a term that I have only just started to use. Basically it means using the power and wisdom of a crowd (group of people) to help solve issues or maybe create new ideas.
Wise crowding works on the basis that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
So who can use this? Well anybody really. You can run public events where people who don’t know each other come together or within organisations where people might already know one another.
The aim is to find out what skills are available and use them to either solve issues if they can be solved quickly or find a way forward with something that might take a bit more effort or time. You can even use such an event for prototyping a product or service.
So why talk about Wisdom? Well if you collect data it is just that, data. If you organise it then it can become information. Add context and the information becomes knowledge.
Wisdom is the next step up the ‘ladder of usefulness’ where we take knowledge in conjunction with experience and actually apply it to real world problems like the ones you have in your business or organisation.
