TODO Group is proud to announce a new OSPO Mind Map version release. The mind map shows a Open Source Program Office’s (OSPO) responsibilities, roles, behavior, and team size within an organization. This post highlights the major improvements done by the community in this new version of the OSPO Mind Map.
OSPO Mind Map
Responsibilities section has new OSPO-specific topics and different sub-sections defined, including:
- 📘 Develop and Execute Open Source Strategy
- 🧭 Eliminate Friction from Using and Contributing to Open Source
- 🖥️ Manage Open Source IT Infrastructure
- 📚 Give Advice on Open Source
- Grow and Retain Open Source Talent Inside the Organization
- 🤝 Implement InnerSource Practices
- ⏱️ Track Performance Metrics
- 🤝 Collaborate with Open Source Organizations
- 📈 Prioritize and Drive Open Source Upstream Development
- 📝 Establish and Improve Open Source Policies and Processes
- 🔍 Oversee Open Source Compliance
- 📒 Support Corporate Development Activities
Initial pull request with these changes can be found here .
Welcoming Contributors 👋
The TODO Community welcomes more contributors to the OSPO mind Map to bring together the various communities involved in OSPO-specific topics. This will help to improve open source professionals’ guidance across the OSPO ecosystem (e.g topics like “InnerSource”, “Open Source metrics”, “Open Source Compliance” and more).
Updates on display
Initially, the OSPO Mind Map displayed all sections by default, showing a huge mind map image. Now, when people access https://ospomindmap.todogroup.org/ the display view will only show the first 2 levels, so people can expand specific sections, avoiding unnecessary information and focusing on what matters to them at that time.
Welcoming Contributors 👋
We are looking for tech contributors to work on a process to automatically deploy new versions of OSPO mind map to the website . If you’d be interested to contribute, please open a PR !
About OSPO Mind Map and OSPOlogy
This Mind Map is part of the TODO Group’s OSPOlogy repository which encapsulates a set of open initiatives (including the OSPO Mind Map, virtual global & regional meetings, an OSPO discussion forum, monthly OSPO News, and now, in-person workshops) to work in collaboration and study the status of OSPOs.
