SET THE MEETING

The first step is usually a kickoff meeting where we discuss the scope of work, talk about the immediate needs, and provide background education, answer questions, etc.

We bring Leadership, Developers, and Legal to discover the best course of action in addressing Open Source.

ESTABLISH THE PLAN

This is not some high level “aspirational” fluff.  We help develop a plan that satisfies the needs of all stakeholders, especially the developers.  We work until there is buy in from all parties, and help to establish the relevant training for developers, management and legal.  We for developers, we get in the weeds, with usable examples.  We can sit down and talk developers through the process at the code level.  For management, we can explain the process from a business management perspective, and show how we are reducing management overhead.  For legal, we can explain our process with basis in law.  We can go a step further by helping integrate patent and trademark strategies, help with strategies that isolate and protect business critical code, and establish legal fences that protect the assets  of the company.

We work to help you create a solution that fits your goals, grants permission for innovation, and meets the legal standards so that Open Source fits into the culture of your organization.

IMPLEMENT THE PLAN

We will be right there as open source compliance unfolds.  We will help every step of the way, ensuring that issues are resolved, problems are addressed, and everyone gains value from the process.

Open Source like technology is the way of the future and an ongoing plan is crucial.
