Collaboration in open source projects is important for companies, and it requires leadership that takes a strategic approach to sustaining contributions over time. An open source strategy that aligns with your company’s overall goals allows you to sustain your contributions over the long term while building trust and influence in the projects that are strategic for your organization.

This strategy should include aligning the needs of the company with important open source projects.

This talk will focus on ways to create this alignment and help all of us be successful together.
