Crowdsourcing in Software Development: A State-of-the-Art Analysis
TLDR
A fundamental framework with five dimensions is proposed to structure the existing insights of crowdsourcing in the context of software development and to derive a research agenda to guide further research. Expand
When is Crowdsourcing Advantageous? The Case of Crowdsourced Software Testing
TLDR
This work contributes to the crowdsourcing literature by providing first empirical evidence about the instances in which crowdsourcing is an advantageous way of problem solving, as well as presenting two case studies from the domain of crowdsourced software testing. Expand
How to Systematically Conduct Crowdsourced Software Testing? Insights from an Action Research Project
TLDR
The model unfolds necessary activities, process changes, and the accompanied roles for crowdsourced software testing to enable organizations to systematically conduct such initiatives and illustrates how test departments can use crowdsourcing as a new tool in their department. Expand
Leveraging the Power of the Crowd for Software Testing
TLDR
Three case studies illustrate crowdtesting' differences, benefits, and challenges, and the potential solutions to those challenges: engage an external crowd of Internet users, engage their employees, or engage their customers. Expand
Can Laymen outperform Experts? The effects of User Expertise and Task Design in Crowdsourced Software Testing
TLDR
This work aims at providing valuable insights for the process of framing and allocating tasks to crowds in ways that increase the crowdworkers’ performance and to improve the configuration of crowdsourced software testing initiatives. Expand
Towards Successful Crowdsourcing Projects: Evaluating the Implementation of Governance Mechanisms
TLDR
A multiple case analysis of crowdsourcing projects on collaboration-based and/or competition-based crowdsourcing systems reveals that task definition mechanisms and quality assurance mechanisms have the highest impact on the success of crowdsourced projects, whereas task allocation mechanisms are less decisive.
