When I go into a corporation or other organization to establish an internal Open Source strategy, the work generally follows the following steps (although they obviously need adapting to each additional organization). I talked about the steps during the Open Source strategy workshop earlier today:
- Establish the Open Source “baseline”
- Develop policies and guidelines to support and educate all parties
- Anchor the Open Source strategy within the organization
- Establish an internal Open Source “community”
I’ll talk about each point in more detail during additional posts.
