To profit from crowdsourcing, organizations can engage in four different approaches: microtasking, information pooling, broadcast search, and open collaboration. This article presents 21 governance mechanisms that can help organizations manage their crowdsourcing platforms. It investigates the effectiveness of these governance mechanisms in 19 case studies and recommends specific configurations of these mechanisms for each of the four crowdsourcing approaches. Also, it offers guidance to… Expand
How to Manage Crowdsourcing Platforms Effectively
Abstract Crowdsourced tasks are very diverse – and so are platform types. They fall into four categories, each demanding different governance mechanisms. The main goal of microtasking crowdsourcingExpand

Factors influencing the crowd participation in knowledge-intensive crowdsourcing
TLDR
This study classifies factors into four categories, i.e., task properties, crowdsourcing platform characteristics, motivations of the crowd, and requesters' feedbacks, according to the process of crowdsourcing and its components, to offer guidelines for developing comprehensive models and approaches to sustain the crowd participation in KI-C.

Why Incorporating a Platform-Intermediary can Increase Crowdsourcees’ Engagement
TLDR
It is proposed that crowdsourcing enterprises, incorporating intermediaries, have the potential to generate a desired engagement state when perceived stimuli under their control belong to the so-called group of “game changer” and “value adders”, while the intermediary controls mainly “risk factors” for absorbing negative experiences.
