Crowd-sourced concepts are what will drive business concepts in the future.

It is no longer sufficient to have the top guy in the company make all the decisions. Even if you have a specialized team, to create something that the people will buy, you have to get input from them. Crowd-sourcing has touched anything from community-wide art projects to high-tech weather trackers, to socially beneficial career advising apps to hilarious late-night song parodies and most recently, the crowd-sourced funding concept. It has infiltrated so many aspects of everyday life.

Companies must continue to harness the power of the people to create more innovative services. Increased connectivity means a wealth of resources is available (literally man-power) to more effectively reach common goals.
