Operating in a platform and ecosystem environment

It was great getting to see what you guys are building. I think it is a wonderful idea. I really enjoyed the lunch. It was nice to sit back and converse with intellectuals who have a broad view on sociological matters. I actually spoke about it for a few days after with friends as it really did leave an impression. Conversations like that are few and far between in my field. It is something special.

Thoughtful and cutting edge. Mindhive is a potential must have collaboration platform, for enhanced community collaboration and problem solving. Some takeaways: wisdom of crowds is an abundant resource; Mindhive as a tool to tap this resource; value adding potential of Mindhive as tool of 21st Century collaboration networks.

Richard Ferrers
Australian National Data Service

We were really surprised by the quality and creativity and depth of the ideas our people generated. It has started a real culture shift and it has now given us the confidence to think about generating ideas outside our own walls.

The course exposed our team to a faster way of ideation which eliminated the barrier of physical presence. Crowdsourcing is the in-thing. I think that people have accepted this mode of communication and technology and are comfortable with providing their expertise in whatever channels they can.

Course Facilitator


Digital is a key enabler to improving many economic and social outcomes in the public and private interest. Bruce Muirhead knows a thing or two about this, as a successful entrepreneur; he has founded a number of platforms which enable this, through leveraging networks of partners dedicated to developing ideas through collaboration. He is the founder of Boilerhouse (1999), Eidos (2004) and MindHive (2014).

Most recently, MindHive works by applying the shared intelligence of 12,000+ experts to organisational challenges. Since 2014 these platforms have been recognised with nine national innovation awards. Bruce has been acknowledged by the Australian Government as leading one of ten national projects (alongside the Sydney Olympics and the response to the Bali bombings) for creating large-scale collaboration to respond to Australia’s priority challenges in social and economic impact.



Listen to Bruce discuss problem solving and collective intelligence on ABC National Radio's How to problem solve - the ultimate problem on Future Tense with Antony Funnell.
