Please help contribute to the knowledge base or help improve our resources for open source programs. Most OSR resources are collaboratively produced as open source projects, and we're always on the lookout for ways to enable participants to share knowledge and best practices in a form that's useful to their peers.
If you have a project to propose, open a GitHub issue and share your vision!
Alternatively, most pages have an "edit" button where you can propose changes to a page via the GitHub Pull Request process.
This site is designed as a collection of interconnecting documents and categories which can be browsed in any order. The following diagram summarizes the information architecture:

Where To Start
Open Source Activities
This section describes common activities performed by staff involved in the consumption or contribution of open source software. Where possible, we identify the role performing this activity.
Open Source Artifacts
This section describes common artifacts either consumed or produced when managing open source software within the enterprise. Artifacts may be machine- or process- generated (such as an SBOM) or the result of human effort (such as an Open Source Strategy).
This section of the body of knowledge details certifications we are producing for either open source professionals or organisations.
Open Source Measurements
This section of the Body of Knowledge describes common measurements you might make within an organisation to judge the health either of individual projects or the organisation's maturity of open source as a whole.
The Open Source Maturity Model
The Open Source Maturity Model (OSMM) is a framework that helps organizations assess and improve their use of open source software. The primary purpose of the OSMM is to provide a structured way for organizations to evaluate their open source practices and identify areas for improvement. The model consists of a set of maturity levels, each with a defined set of characteristics and activities that an organization must achieve to move to the next level.
This section of the body of knowledge looks at the different laws that might apply to the consumption or contribution of open source within regulated industries.
The OSR SIG has produced several resources to help financial services firms along their open source journey.
Open Source Risks
This section breaks down the different types of risks that enterprises face by consuming or contributing to open source software.
Open Source Roles
Different roles within a firm have varying responsibilities towards the effective management of open source software.
This section of the body of knowledge looks at the available training on open source.
Here are some presentations collected together produced by the Open Source Readiness and InnerSource SIGs.
