Open Source Maturity Model (OSMM)

The Open Source Maturity Model allows you to understand where your organization is on its open source journey by providing a snapshot of its current stage of maturity.

The model is an open source project and is free to use, study, improve, and redistribute according to the license requirements.

You can take the Open Source Maturity Model survey now at and we welcome your open source contributions on the OSMM GitHub Repository.
