ABSTRACT
Inner source, the adoption and tailoring of open source development practices in organizations, is receiving increased interest. However, although it offers numerous benefits, many practitioners are unclear about what it is and how to adopt it. When adopting inner source, organizations should consider nine factors pertaining to product, process, and organization. A description of three inner-source initiatives illustrates these nine factors.
