Getting buy-in for an Open Source Program Office (OSPO) can be tough, for a successful program, you need almost the entire company to buy-in. And once you get buy-in? Be prepared to measure and prove success.

In this talk, Alison will go over how we got executive and marketing buy-in, and the different initiatives that are targeted to our internal audience.

Now the mighty question: What metrics should we be tracking?

You may be asking yourself, how do I get a sense of the community’s activity and growth? Alison will go over what data that we collect, why this specific data, and how we use the data to show success, update community strategy, point out weaknesses, and eliminate obstacles as they arise.

This talk will be an expanded version of Alison's DevRelCon SF talk. Alison will go into more detail around measuring metrics and how we implement changes due to the metrics.
