How do you know if the open source investments you’ve been making – like investing in popular open source projects or developing educational assets focused on open source – are having the positive impact that you want?

In this brief video, we will demonstrate how we conducted a series of quantitative studies spanning multiple years to establish a clear benchmark for our client’s engagement with the open source community. We offered recommendations on areas that warranted additional investment and areas that could benefit from reduced investment, all with the overarching goal of guiding them toward achieving a strong partnership with the open source community.

The Problem

Open source leadership is hard to achieve. How do you know if the investments that you’ve been making – perhaps in popular open source projects, or by hiring well-known open source contributors, or just even in developing educational assets to target open source – are having the kind of positive impact that you want?

These are the kinds of questions a client recently came to us with. And instead of just wondering about the answers to these questions or making educated guesses, they chose to Act With Clarity™.

The Solution

And once they made that decision, they asked us to commission a series of quantitative studies over a period of several years, so that we could effectively benchmark this organization’s relationship with the open source community. We could provide guidance as to where they should invest further and where they should de-invest.

And so if you’re having similar challenges with a community that you want to engage with more effectively, you can either give us a call or drop us an email at hello@cascadeinsights. com or visit cascadeinsights.com and fill out our contact form. And hopefully, we can help you Act With Clarity™ too.
