2016-09-21 Update: the 2016 survey is up and receiving answers with many of the questions below plus others from kjstol.

Help us brainstorm questions for a survey of channel participants. The intention is to have an anonymous survey to generate data that can be useful for checking on the state of corporate InnerSource programs

    • 0-1K, 1K-5K, 5K-10K, 10K-50K, 50K+?
  • rough number of inner sourced projects in your company
  • number of developers participating in inner sourcing
  • (subjective) level of success
    • not successful, not very successful yet, too early to say, modestly successful, very successful, extremely successful
  • benefits achieved
  • number of years of the program
  • platform(s) used for software configuration management
  • platform(s) used for continuous integration

  • Are you planning to attend the 2016 Inner Source Commons Fall Summit in Boston?
