Dr Acar’s survey was designed to identify what motivated people to submit solutions; their responses were cross-referenced with the appropriateness of the ideas they provided using archival information from InnoCentive.,Dr Acar said it was when companies attract responses from people with the wrong kinds of motivation that they end up swamped with ideas and the crowdsourcing campaign often fails.,Dr Acar said that, in this instance, BP cast their crowdsourcing net too wide; rather than designing a campaign to attract people with specific motivations – those who are more likely to generate appropriate solutions – they appealed to people who just wanted to help by sharing their ideas, regardless of whether their solution was suitable.,To attract more appropriate solutions through crowdsourcing, Dr Acar said businesses need to motivate the right people.,Dr Acar’s paper, Motivations and Solution Appropriateness in Crowdsourcing Challenges for Innovation, is available online and is in press to be published in the journal Research Policy this year.
