You’ve got big ideas on how your company should develop an open source culture more fully. You can see the value that change will bring. Yet as you try to share your ideas, they’re just not sticking. People don’t seem to see their importance, or perhaps they give vocal assent but don’t actually make on-the-ground changes in behavior. You may be wondering if your organization or team just isn’t ready for open source or what you can do to move your company and its people toward a more collaborative and open culture. Every person and organization is ready to incorporate more open source principles and activity into their regular work.
Russell Rutledge explains how to make that change happen, no matter the current engagement or proficiency level of the people or team you’re working with using the collaboration maturity model, a unified way of representing multiparticipant collaboration in and out of a company. The model is easy to remember and shows how strictly open source activity relates to and is supported by other forms of collaboration inside and outside of your organization.
The collaboration maturity model gives you guideposts to follow on your organization’s journey toward open source. You’ll easily be able to find where you are, where you want to go, and the small, incremental checkpoints you can hit on your way there. You’ll be able to mentally plot where other ideas apply in the maturity model and focus on those that lie squarely in your incremental path of growth toward open source culture.
