Collaboration in Large-Scale Collectives

Collaboration in Large-Scale Collectives

My research in this domain examines the nature of collaboration in digitally-enabled open collectives such as open source software communities. I am particularly interested in the unfolding of large-scale collaborations that must balance organizational and crowd interests. What are the different models that organizations are adopting to leverage the crowd? How is this affecting the engagement of the crowd?
