Every organisation nowadays heavily relies on open source software and on its ecosystem, and Open Source Program Offices (OSPOs) are becoming an essential component of our landscape. But for many of us, and for many organisations, the impact of open source software and ecosystem is still not clear, nor what should be done to properly manage it at a strategic level.
The Good Governance Initiative (GGI) proposes a framework to help shape, build and develop an OSPO, from the roadmap definition to its actual implementation and monitoring. It provides a set of practical guidelines, ideas and best practices to do so, and goes further down the road to define a true strategy that will actually deliver the greater benefits of the open source community and ecosystem.
During this talk we will present the GGI Handbook, discuss the missions and approaches to OSPOs, and share recommendations from practitionners to build a good, and proper, open source governance.
