During the analysis phase and the design phase of the design or software development project, developers must ask various questions, conduct researches, and test their prototypes to create a serviceable product (Grier, 2013).
In particular, traditional research methods such as focus group interviews or surveys could be immensely time consuming and costly. On the other hand, crowdsourcing provides a swift and inexpensive solution.
Most specifically, crowdsourcing relies on the intelligence of the “crowd” to perform tasks in exchange for compensation. In other words, it’s outsourcing to a crowd.
