Two years ago, Mozilla’s Open Innovation team took inspiration from a discussion at the OSLS around the need for companies invested in open source to be open by design: to ensure their entire open source approach for a project, from governance to tools, is thoughtfully designed to reach that project’s goals and impact.

To help with this challenge, in summer 2018, Mozilla together with Open Tech Strategies published a research report, a “field guide” into open source strategy and project design. This "Open Source Archetypes Report" identified 10 general types of open communities in their strategic contexts.

This presentation will not only share perspectives to encourage a more systematic approach to open source. It will also provide a sneak preview of the upcoming version two of the report, which takes into account industry feedback we collected in response to the original release.
