As companies move beyond consumption, contributions are often done ad-hoc, and when control is introduced, compliance, defensive IP portfolios, and lack of knowledge of the potential value creation may risk blocking otherwise motivated contributions. Contributions should be made with the right purpose in the right places, connecting to the business goals of a company. In this talk, Johan will present ways and means for OSPOs to set up internal contribution processes that enable a distributed and efficient community engagement for their development organization. More specifically, Johan will present a framework that enables companies to balance the objectives and complexities of contributing to and releasing software as open source. The framework is based on multiple case studies and interviews with international software-intensive companies and their OSPOs. Based on experience from a live implementation, Johan will also exemplify how the framework can be used to set up a contribution process along with lessons learned. The blend of theory and practice will provide the audience with a practical tool-set to consider and apply within their organizations, helping to create a mindset among developers and managers to default to the question “can this be made open?”.
