In recent years, new models of innovation based on crowdsourcing and innovation communities have emerged, and some have had notable success. Karim Lakhani has studied these models rigorously and compared their results with captive R&D efforts. He has begun to systematically define the conditions under which innovating with crowds is successful, as well as the management practices that are less successful. In this interview, he discusses innovation with crowds and what managers need to do to tap into their potential.
