Steering an 24-year- old organization from a volunteer-run to a professionally staffed one has an enormous quantity of challenges. The Open Source Initiative is on a multi-year journey to redo itself, for the third time. From the early days of the founders to the expansion to an elected board, individual members and affiliate organizations up to today’s structure.
