2023 has been brutal for the tech industry. Even more so for OSPOs, which suffered budget and headcount cuts, felt increased pressure around software supply chain security, and saw AI stealing the spotlight.

The very tactical approach that worked when credit was cheap and money was flowing no longer cuts it. In today’s environment, strategic alignment with organizational mission, goals, and strategy becomes essential to demonstrate value and get executive attention, buy-in, and support.

Tobie Langel has been helping organizations think strategically about their open source involvement for close to a decade. He’ll be sharing some of the frameworks he uses to align externally-facing teams with internal stakeholders and become more impactful both internally and externally as a result.
