Video Description

Middle management support is crucial to the adoption and long term survival of any InnerSource program. But how do you pull that off? In this course, InnerSource expert Silona Bonewald reveals the strategies that will convince middle managers to approve your InnerSource program and support them for doing so. One key to her approach: learn how to measure your program's success. If middle managers can see measurable success, your InnerSource program will thrive.
