Open Source Maturity Model Tutorial

Max Sunemark of Addalot (Sweden) and Carl-Eric Mols of Sony Mobile (Sweden) presented a Tutorial on the Open Source Maturity Model at the International Conference on Open Source Systems, which took place in June 2016. The tutorial was attended by approximately 25 attendants. The tutorial outlined the structure of the maturity model, how to employ the maturity model, as well as a number of patterns. One common pattern, for example, is that of the Open Source Officer. Most large companies that engage in open source now have such an Open Source Officer, who acts as an advocate and community expert. Such a person helps the organization to understand and engage with open source communities, and to lead internal education initiatives.
