Abstract
The phenomenon of adopting open source software development

practices in a corporate environment is known by many names,

one being inner source. The objective of this study is to investigate how

an organization consisting of small development teams can benet from

adopting inner source and assess the level of applicability. The research

Data collection was carried out through interviews and a series of focus

group meetings, and then analyzed by mapping it to an available framework.

The analysis shows that the organization possesses potential, and

also identied a number of challenges and benets of special importance

to the case company. To address these challenges, the case study synthesized

the organizational and infrastructural needs of the organization

in a requirements specication describing a technical infrastructure, also

known as a software forge, with an adapted organizational context and

work process. (Less)
