Collaboration within open source projects is becoming increasingly important for companies, but it can be difficult to strike the right balance between the needs of the company and the open source project. This can create friction and put significant pressure on employees who participate on behalf of their company when the needs of the individual, the company, and the community are not aligned. This talk will focus on ways to create this alignment between individuals, companies, and the community to help all of us be successful together.

The talk covers:
* Dynamics of collaboration in open source projects between individuals, companies, and communities.
* Strategies for participating in ways that will benefit your company, your employees, and the community.
* Tips for being a good corporate citizen as you contribute to open source projects.

This presentation is primarily for open source program offices, but community managers and other OSS contributors would also benefit.
