For aspiring practitioners and those intrigued by the applications of collective intelligence in the workplace, the typical prediction markets conference can be frustrating for lack of focus on practical knowledge and hands-on experience with the tools. That’-s why NewsFutures is organizing a Wisdom of Crowds Consulting Workshop, in New York City, on October 27.
It is designed primarily for business consultants who would like to acquire working knowledge of “-WOC”–based solutions, or for the manager looking for some hands-on experience while considering the potential of this approach for his or her company.
The one-day program will cover:
Prediction Markets and Wisdom of Crowds 101: principles, mechanisms, evidence, and applications
Case studies in strategy, forecasting, innovation, and project management
Hands-on experience with various wisdom-of-crowds software tools: Prediction Markets, Competitive Forecasting, Idea Pageant, and Impact Matrix
Keys to a successful implementation: information, integration, inclusion, interface, and incentives
Nuts and bolts of working with NewsFutures
