The Journey to InnerSource at Microsoft
By Different Perspectives with NearForm
Danese Cooper chats with Martin Woodward, Director of Developer Relations for Github, about Microsoft's journey from fully embracing open source in the 2010s to now adopting InnerSource as a way of continuous innovation. Martin talks about the importance of welcoming 'contributors of time', striking a balance between rewarding people and acknowledging collaborative efforts and how securing a bottom-up, top-down approach is vital. He stresses the importance of celebrating the small 1% successes, reassessing your top pains on an ongoing basis and, as a leader, asking new questions regularly for incremental step changes.
