Building great open technology projects requires world-class open source expertise
LF Project Operations enables your open source project to grow a diverse and sustainable ecosystem
A sustainable open source project requires more than just code; a full scale of operational support and services ensures your community can focus on the technology while LF Project Operations supports the fiduciary, legal, ecosystem development, and other key operational functions for growing an open source community.
Why do you need program management as part of your open source project? We asked a few of the Linux Foundation’s program managers to tell us how they each approach the task.
Sustainable open source projects have a diverse set of stakeholders and participants, often being competitors. LF Project Operations professional approach ensures vendor-neutrality with a focus on positive outcomes for the project as a whole, ensuring all stakeholders are engaged on project activities and decisions.
LF Project Operations recognizes each project is unique, and focuses on working with these stakeholders to set strategic goals and priorities and facilitation on their execution.
Being the host of over 450 open source projects, the LF has a broad collective knowledge and experience from the smallest to the largest projects. From advising on open and transparent governance to building project lifecycles, we can ensure that the project has the right pieces to ensure long-term sustainability and broad community adoption.
