7. Going with Open Source
How and Why open source works was described in the previous chapters. In many cases, the idea of using open source originates with a project leader or mid-level manager in a company. This chapter and the two that follow address such leaders and managers more so than executives. Our aim is to help you decide whether open source is right for your project and describe steps you should take to proceed and missteps to avoid, if you so decide.
