State of InnerSource Survey 2020

Read Research Report

The goal of the survey was to address three main questions:

  1. What is the state of InnerSource adoption across different organizations?
  2. What factors influence the success of InnerSource adoption?
  3. What are the main obstacles for adopting InnerSource?

Since a number of studies already documented the Key Factors for InnerSource success in detail, we focused more on exploring the key motivations for contributors and the obstacles.


For the full results see the State of InnerSource 2020 Report.


This survey was conducted by Tapajit Dey of Lero—the Irish Software Research Centre. Cristina Coffey and Tadhg O’Neill of InnerSource Commons contributed to the report outline and design.
