OpenChain


RUFFIN, MICHEL (MICHEL) <michel.ruffin@...>
 

FYI, I am now authorized to contribute to OpenChain in the name of Alcatel-Lucent world wide (sorry it took a while to get all the authorizations). I will try to participate to a meeting soon, but can I have 10 minutes to say, what I think is not ok and what should be done forward

 

Mainly what I think is not ok is that the first level criteria are too strong, you need to have a smoother approach for companies which have not or have a weak governance process in place

 

Concerning additional criteria, I have a lot of ideas that we are setting in place in Alcatel-Lucent

 

My dis-confort with the actual criteria is that there is a mix between low level criteria and high level criteria. In term of steps to reach a good governance process.

 

A governance process should start low: identify people enroll the lawyers, making a basic governance process, ..

Then raising attention in the company, refining the model to address suppliers, customers, outsourcing, …

Measuring the implementation of the process, coping with divestiture, contribution to open sources, SaaS…

 

And in all the process the resources to sustain it must be made available so everything  cannot be done at once.

 

ALU has gone to all this stages and we are still evolving
