What TODO in the EU: Updates from the TODO Group European Chapter - Ana Jiménez Santamaría, TODO Group Program Manager, The Linux Foundation
Just under 3 years ago, members of the TODO Group joined together to form the European chapter of the organization. Today, our chapter spans representatives from five countries, with participants bringing viewpoints from enterprise open source software vendors, semiconductor manufacturers, transportation & logistics suppliers, location services creators, and public transit providers. Please join us to hear about the group’s activities to date, how we are working together to support the flowering of open source competency in Europe, and how you and your organization can get involved with the EU Chapter even if you’re not (yet) a member of the TODO Group. Attendees of this session will leave with a solid understanding of some of the resources TODO EU has created to further the adoption of open source solutions in Europe, our outreach to businesses looking to create an open source strategy, and our collaboration with other community groups looking to advance the cause of European open source innovation.

Building an OSPO: The Alliander Experiences - Judith Scheperboer-Bol & Jonas van den Bogaard, Alliander
Business sponsorship, enthusiasm and going for it. Those three ingredients define Alliander’s OSPO. After joining LF Energy and releasing our first open source project under the LF Energy umbrella, we started to recognize the need within Alliander for a group of people with the know-how and mandate to help bring structure and organization to the open source plans. And so some enthusiasts came together and discussed the various open source needs within the company. The OSPO turned out to be an excellent means for this because it created an overview of all open source activities. From there, we started consolidating knowledge, worked on building better open source development practices, familiarized the organization with innersource, improved license compliance, and looked for external opportunities for collaborating via open source. The OSPO as a strategic pillar for change was born. One year later, here we are. We have released and contributed to many more open source projects, have a functioning Open Source Program Office and are starting to embed the open source mindset in the organization. In this talk, we will tell you more about our journey, about our best practices, and about why sometimes you just have to start doing something – and see the result later.

The Many Faces of Measuring OSPO Success - Daniel Izquierdo, Bitergia
By participating in the CHAOSS -Community Health Analytics for OSS- community and giving (disclaimer: commercial) advise in Bitergia in the OSPO field, Daniel has had the opportunity to meet different organizations willing to understand the impact and ROI of participating in the open.  From a C- level perspective, the usual question on the table is about the value of working in the open and the value of having an OSPO. While those running the OSPO fully understand the value of working in the open, they may need to prove that value to upper management and look for the sustainability of the OSPO itself.   The TODO group, and other OSPO-related initiatives are great places to discuss about this, and bring some light to this discussion. There are indeed great guidelines focused on the topic [1]. However, there are still gaps in the discussion of measuring this "value".  This talk aims at fostering discussion on the topic of measuring OSPO success by building on top of existing guidelines, and bringing to the audience other experiences, points of view, and lessons learned.  Main audience takeaways: * Review of existing guidelines * What does it mean value for OSPO? * How to measure your OSPO success * Tools and methods    [1] https://todogroup.org/guides

It's All About the Strategy: A Brief Story of the Open Source Renaissance in Financial Services - Gabriele Columbro, FINOS
While adoption has been on par with other industries, financial services has been historically lagging behind in Open Source contributions and engagement in the Community. This has been largely due to the highly regulated and competitive nature of the industry creating a cultural environment that didn’t encourage or enable - or frankly saw the value in - open source contributions. Over the last 5 years, the context is drastically changing, as the industry experiences an open source renaissance, that culminated in major open source contributions from firms of the likes of Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, and Citi to FINOS, the Fintech Open Source Foundation. In this session, Gabriele Columbro, Executive Director of FINOS, will walk you through the key milestones that brought the industry here, highlighting critical factors, motivators and proven-to-be-successful tactics that have brought historically very conservative firms to embrace open collaboration. As a bonus, Gabriele will share initial highlights of the first annual State of Open Source In Financial Services survey run by the FINOS in collaboration with the Linux Foundation research in 2021.

Scaling Open Source Software in a Large Telco R&D Environment – Ericsson’s Open Source Journey - George Kunz & Gunnar Nilsson, Ericsson
The telco world is a conservative one, deeply rooted in structured, long-term standardization processes, which lay the foundation for proprietary implementations. Open Source Software is often perceived as quite the opposite: a highly dynamic eco-system in which open implementations define de-facto standards and drive adoption. It is hence no surprise that as open source software became a natural part of telco products over the past decade, this transformation has resulted in a quite a learning curve for telcos. In this presentation, Gunnar and Georg will describe Ericsson's journey over the past decades towards the establishment of an Open Source Program Office. They will outline the challenges that come with a large global R&D environment spread over multiple business areas. Further, they will outline the paradigms that drove the uptake of open source in the telco domain. In addition, they will talk about how Ericsson is striving towards implementing best practices for working with open source and the need to collaboratively drive projects to production. Finally, they will summarize the lessons learned and give an outlook to address consumption at scale.

Good Governance Practices for Healthy Open Source Projects - Dawn Foster, VMware
Too many open source project maintainers think that they don’t need governance ... until something goes terribly wrong that makes them realize that they should have done something much sooner. Undefined or inadequate governance for an open source project can result in a lack of transparency that causes confusion over how decisions are made, unrealistic expectations, and unresolved disagreements between participants. Even very small projects can benefit from having basic governance documentation that includes information about how decisions are made and who maintains the project. Governance doesn’t need to be elaborate or perfect at the start; it can evolve and adapt as a project grows. This talk will cover: * Why governance is important. * The role of mission, values / principles, and scope in setting expectations. * Defining roles, responsibilities, processes, and procedures within your governance model. * Contributor ladders as a way to help people move into leadership positions. * The governance pros and cons of keeping a project within your company vs. contributing it to a neutral foundation. The audience will get practical advice about creating fair and neutral governance structures and processes for your open source projects.

Exploring OSPOs and Open Methods in Humanitarian Response - Heather Leson, Solferino Academy, & International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent Societies & Pete Masters, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT)
Advocating and implementing open source products/services in humanitarian response is not new. Humanitarian organizations are still grappling on how to collaborate and build on the potential opportunities, including exploring how OPSOs might support these efforts. How can we move beyond individual products/pilots, and shift to a more coordinated approach? Linking with open source communities/partners and volunteer/technical communities (e.g. be good open citizens) must align with digital transformation considerations, humanitarian principles, core organizational strategies, while being effective in our use of open source, open data and open organization principles. In this talk, we will explore case studies (or experiences), insights, failures, lessons, methodologies, and models that might position an organization to set up an OSPO and/or prioritize for new ways of working with more open source in a digital age. We also seek the OSPO network’s input on ways forward to open up humanitarian work.

Justifying an OSPO in Dollars and Cents - Van Lindberg, OSPOCO
When budgets get tight, OSPOs are frequently among the first areas targeted for cuts. Even in good times, OSPOs sometimes have a hard time communicating concretely how they are providing value to the larger organization, above just "avoiding license risk." On the other hand, when OSPOs are recognized as contributors to the corporate bottom line, it makes it much easier to build and continue effective open source engagement. This presentation will focus on some concrete ways to attribute increases in corporate value to a company's open source activities. How much is a Github star worth? Or an additional download? A pull request from an outside contributor? Or the goodwill associated with a sponsorship? Using a structure put in place at multiple companies, we will talk about how community relationships are a form of "goodwill" - like trademark goodwill - that can be valued. We can also measure how a company's actions can increase that goodwill. We will also discuss how OSPO-driven changes can lead to measurable differences in the cost of marketing, training, the cost of goods sold, and retention of employees.

The Political Potential of OSPOs - Clare Dillon, Mosslabs & Astor Nummelin Carlberg, Open Forum Europe
The establishment of OSPOs to achieve open source goals is gaining momentum in the public sector. We see these developments on a city, regional, national and supranational level. This matters because the OSPO construct was a key enabler in unlocking vast amounts of value for the ICT industry. Now the question is how OSPOs in government can help deliver value for citizens the world over at scale. This development matters, and should be supported. Astor Nummelin Carlberg of OpenForum Europe will present the data and analysis behind the policy recommendation in the European Commission study on the economic impact of open source software of building a network of 20 OSPOs in government and academia. Clare Dillon of Mosslabs will discuss how governments can define their open source goals and build an OSPO as an enabler of these. Like in the private sector, public authorities have diverse policy goals, which undoubtedly will lead to a diverse range of OSPOs, which will create both opportunities and challenges when it comes to networking them for impact at scale. Together, Astor and Clare will outline their view of the rationale behind the latest public sector developments and the potential impact.
