Over the past 10 years we’ve seen an explosion of corporate collaboration within the Networking and Telco industries through open source projects. The organizations working on these projects explain in no-uncertain-terms the critical importance of their success for the future of the industry.

Yet, most of those involved in these projects wish for substantially faster progress. Everyone is working so hard and they are clearly dedicated to the success of their efforts. So why is it taking so long? Why isn’t progress faster? Why haven’t more developers and companies joined in the effort to speed things along?

In this talk, we will look at project priorities and the resulting cultural behaviors. We will look at the positive effects of the choices made along with other consequences that have been more unexpected. We will conclude by examining ways that we may wish to change the culture of these projects and/or reset expectations so that success is more readily apparent as it occurs.
