Community Management is dead... Long live Cross-Community development!!

Community Management is dead... Long live Cross-Community development!!

The inter-dependency of Open Source projects has changed the nature of Open Source community development. As communities converge, release schedules and priorities collides, project leaders need to adjust OS models, re-think interactions with multiple release cycles and juggle the divergent agendas.

This session will discuss research findings in how organizations participate and evolve across projects such as OpenStack and/or CNCF projects. And from this point of view, how community management as we know nowadays (silo-ed or focus on one project) needs to evolve to the concept of cross-community management. Businesses are not dependent of just one technology, but a myriad of them. Thus the business of community management should be oriented to a deeper understanding of the cross-community collaboration.
