ANTHONY'S Presentation

InnerSource As The First Step Toward Open Source - from September 30, 2020 - Open Source Readiness (OSR) Project



Setting up an OSPO is easy, but establishing a culture that adopts Open Source in a collaborative fashion takes time.  This talk will provide the 4 Horizon approach taken to establish an OSPO.  Once we review the 4 horizons, we will focus on Horizon 1: Establishing an InnerSource culture.
