OpenChain PlayBook – Medium Company – Now Available

By 2021-12-16July 26th, 2022Featured, News

The first OpenChain PlayBook is now available. It focuses on showing how a medium size company can go from considering to using OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020.

The OpenChain PlayBooks are intended to help you understand the types of decisions made by managers in companies adopting OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020. We cover examples of the decision-process in small, medium and large companies. Our examples are based on companies (a) in the technology industry, (b) in the middle of the supply chain and (c) shipping physical products containing software.

This may sound specific. However, the intention is to provide a thinking-tool for your company. Whether you are in the technology, finance, cloud, infrastructure or automotive industry (or any other), you will face similar challenges and solutions. The same applies whether you are in the middle of the supply chain or at its end, and whether you are shipping hardware or software. Our chosen examples cover a lot of ground.

Finally, this PlayBook contains an appendix with all the questions you need to answer to become OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020 conformant. If you can answer all of these questions with “yes,” you have a conformant program. If you answer some of the questions with “no,” you know where to invest resources.
