As companies get increasingly dependent on open source projects, it is important to have an purpose-driven engagement and investment plan for critical projects. I will cover best practices for companies in identifying key dependencies, creating plans for company participation and resources. This includes branding, recruitment or dedication of technical resources, budgeting for sponsorship and messaging. This external plan needs to be supported and championed inside the company with a long-term mindset. People inside the company need to develop competencies on working with the community they are assigned to and to champion the community inside the company for success.
