Dr. Lorraine Morgan was awarded €128,600 from Lero, Science Foundation Ireland for a four-year project on Inner Source & Digital Platforms. The overall aim of this project is to investigate how adopting inner source can help organisations develop open digital platforms. The specific research objectives are:
- To examine the extent to which Inner Source can help create digital platforms
- To develop and validate a framework with associated metrics to help organisations connect the capabilities of inner source with the challenges faced when developing their digital platform.
- To examine how organisations can offset the cost of change with near-term practical gains.
- To provide practical recommendations to organisations wishing to follow a strategy of inner source-driven platformisation.
