Crowdcast and “Collective Intelligence”

Crowdcast is an interesting start-up that applies the wisdom of crowds to organizations. Want to know how well a new product will do? Whether a supplier will remain solvent? When a new product will launch? Ask your employees, the wisdom of crowds should ensure an ultimately informed response.

Of course, the key to this system is getting people to participate, and Crowdcast offers reward to those whose predictions are more unique and more accurate.

It’s interesting to think about this from a project management perspective. When do you expect your project to be complete? Would harnessing “collective intelligence” of everyone involved produce a more accurate answer to that question?
