Crowdstorm a brief for you most important problem

About the Class

This class is based on content from the Crowdstorm book, recently featured in publicatons like Fast Company, The Guardian and Huffington Post.

What You'll Do

You have used brainstorming to get good ideas.

What happens if you take brainstoming out of the conference room and move it online? What happens when if you brainstorm with thousands of participants?

We call this crowdstorming and leading firms like GE, P&G and LEGO already know the answer.

You can get the very best ideas and talent when you crowdstorm.

During our 3 module project, I’ll take you through a crowdstorm experience, so you’re ready to go out and lead your own crowdstorm (after 14 days). We’ll look at examples from large organizations like LEGO, GE, Starbucks and DARPA some smaller ones like Quirky, Triple8 and Giffgaff.

Launch Your Own Crowdstorm

I want you to leave the class, ready to put crowdstorming into action. So your project is simple: Identify a problem you really, really want to solve.

Then use the class materials to design the crowdstorm (brief, incentives, partners, process) to make it happen. We'll use the project space on skillshare to help you make your brief better. And in the process, you'll also experience a crowdstorm.

Yes, its very meta - we'll use crowdstorming to build your own crowdstorm. But most importantly, by the end of the class, you will have everything you need to start your own crowdstorm.  


For the top 3 projects, I’ll meet with you to help you get your crowdstorm launched. And we'll have a few surprise winners, who will get copies of the Crowdstorm book, too.

I enjoyed the class, though admit to being confused by the interface. I realize Skillshare is an evolving app, so I'm not going to say much about that except that the syllabus function...
