Crowdsourcing d’activités inventives et frontières des organisations

Crowdsourcing of inventive activities (IAC) is to outsource to a variety of research activities, or complex creative tasks. Several recent examples have highlighted the advantages of this type of practice, both to reduce costs of the innovation process to improve results. In this work, we study the CAI organizational impact by mobilizing theories on the boundaries of organizations. The literature identifies four different borders: border efficiency, influence, competence and identity. The analysis in terms of border organizations allows us in particular to highlight some limitations in the use of CAI and develop theoretical predictions about the conditions for the emergence and use of CAI.
