Organizations with an OSPO understand the value of investing in open source development and set goals related to open source use and participation. But every open source program defines success a little differently. The goals they set, and metrics they track, will vary according to the reasons the organization is investing in open source – whether it’s to recruit developers, bring in new ideas and technologies through open innovation, achieve faster time to market, lower development costs, or myriad other reasons.
In this panel discussion, a group of OSPO leaders will gather to discuss how they have participated in metrics strategy discussions with the help of CHAOSS tools, and open source metrics standards.

Sean Goggins is a Professor of Computer Science, and a Technology designer and builder in a range of industries. I hold an MS in Software Engineering and a Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology. My research focuses on building context-adaptive spaces to support distributed group work, and performance assessment at the individual, group and, organizational levels. Specifically, I help people build an understanding of the emergence, development, and dissolution of technologically mediated groups in online learning, software engineering, and open public spaces. My publications span Open Source Software, online learning, serious games, social media, and supporting online health communities.
My recent work includes co-founding the Linux Foundation’s CHAOSS working group, which focuses on health and sustainability in Open Source Software. I also lead the development of the foundation’s leading open source project for identifying signals of project health, Augur.
