Title: How is Value Created within an Inner Source Environment?
Author: Noel Carroll:University of Limerick
Abstract: Awareness and indeed adoption of open source practices inside corporate entities, something termed Inner Source, has become quite popular in recent years. However, the majority of research efforts focus on industry-driven Inner Source adoption with little or no conceptual accounts of how value is created and sustained within Inner Source environments. This research-in-progress explains how an Inner Source Capability Maturity Model (IS-CMM) can offer a structure to guide Inner Source strategies and sustaining value co-creation.
