Can organizations benefit from embracing the open source way?

LSE Business Review recently published an article based on my research on SW companies and the potential value of their involvement in open source projects (together with Sherae Daniel, Likeobe Maruping and Jim Herbsleb). Enjoy it!

Invited talk at Carnegie Mellon University

On November 7th, I gave a talk at CMU on my recent work on Software Analytics. The details of the talk are as follows:

Title: "Analytics in Software Development Projects: The Journey from Research to Practice"

Talk Abstract:
Over the past two decades, we have witnessed a drastic increase in the development of metrics and analytical frameworks to study technical, social, organizational and socio-technical aspects of large scale software development projects. Despite the valuable insights that these new approaches provide, their application in practice has faced significant challenges. In this talk, I discuss these challenges and several examples of how those challenges were overcome to provide tangible benefits to software project outcomes. The examples cover geographically distributed software projects from startups to large-multinationals and across several industries.
