Collaborative method Group Setup[edit] Deliberate setup of a team—before beginning work—increases the potential for high performance.[citation needed] To do so, the following components of collaboration should be an initial focus: Group models[edit] Four group models are common in collaboration:[1] Chance Collaboration by chance is the most basic model and underlies all four. Acuity Collaboration by acuity establishes a team with balanced skill sets. Interest Collaboration by interest forms a team of persons with similar hobbies, curiosities or careers. Leader Collaboration by leader is a team model where the members are chosen by a leader. Spence's basic rules[edit] Spence identifies[1] seven rules for all collaboration: Look for common ground: find shared values, consider shared personal experiences, pay attention to and give feedback, be yourself and expect the same of others, be willing to accept differences in perception and opinions Katzenbach and Smith's "team basics"[edit] Complementary skills in team members

The new pool of cheap labor: everyday people using their spare cycles to create content, solve problems, even do corporate R & D. By Jeff HowePage 1 of 4 next » 1. Story Tools Story Images Click thumbnails for full-size image: Claudia Menashe needed pictures of sick people. In October 2004, she ran across a stock photo collection by Mark Harmel, a freelance photographer living in Manhattan Beach, California. The National Health Museum has grand plans to occupy a spot on the National Mall in Washington by 2012, but for now it’s a fledgling institution with little money. After several weeks of back-and-forth, Menashe emailed Harmel to say that, regretfully, the deal was off. iStockphoto, which grew out of a free image-sharing exchange used by a group of graphic designers, had undercut Harmel by more than 99 percent. He can’t, of course. It took a while for Harmel to recognize what was happening.

The scientific method is a process for experimentation that is used to explore observations and answer questions. Even though we show the scientific method as a series of steps, keep in mind that new information or thinking might cause a scientist to back up and repeat steps at any point during the process. Whether you are doing a science fair project, a classroom science activity, independent research, or any other hands-on science inquiry understanding the steps of the scientific method will help you focus your scientific question and work through your observations and data to answer the question as well as possible.

Doctor Crowdsourcing Afgelopen donderdag promoveerde Irma Borst op haar proefschrift “Understanding Crowdsourcing; The effects of motivation and rewards on performance in voluntary online activities”, aan de Erasmus Universiteit van Rotterdam. Een promotieonderzoek duurt toch minstens een jaar of 4 en dan is het opmerkelijk als iemand een onderwerp kiest – zoals Crowdsourcing – dat als woord nog niet bestaat bij aanvang in 2007, en bij voltooiing een modern, hip woord is geworden. Irma mag zich dus kortweg Doctor in de Crowdsourcing noemen. Bij mijn weten is zij daarmee de eerste en voorlopig enige in de wereld. Irma begint haar verdediging met de grap dat crowdsurfing toch echt heel wat anders is, hoewel een journalist die haar interviewde daarmee in de war was. Zij geeft 2 voorbeelden: Lego: het modelvoorbeeld van crowdsourcing, waarbij de crowd (klanten/consumenten) online zelf nieuwe Lego ontwerpen. Voordelen Het is duidelijk dat deze manier van uitbesteden aantrekkelijk is. Vrijwilligers Profielen

Six Thinking Hats Six Thinking Hats is a book by Edward de Bono which describes a tool for group discussion and individual thinking involving six colored hats. "Six Thinking Hats" and the associated idea parallel thinking provide a means for groups to plan thinking processes in a detailed and cohesive way, and in doing so to think together more effectively.[2] Underlying principles[edit] The premise of the method is that the human brain thinks in a number of distinct ways which can be deliberately challenged, and hence planned for use in a structured way allowing one to develop tactics for thinking about particular issues. de Bono identifies six distinct directions in which the brain can be challenged. In each of these directions the brain will identify and bring into conscious thought certain aspects of issues being considered (e.g. gut instinct, pessimistic judgement, neutral facts). Since the hats do not represent natural modes of thinking, each hat must be used for a limited time only. Summary[edit]
