Pass the Torch Without Dropping the Ball: Lessons in Community Management

Monday, October 29, 2018 - 4:00 pm4:30 pm

Rich Bowen, Red Hat


A replacement plan/document is a great community resource, even when you’re not being replaced. A year ago, as the role of OpenStack community manager at Red Hat was moving from one person to another, we started thinking about what needs to be in place to effectively transition a role. More generally, we started thinking about planning, and documenting, for your eventual replacement. We’ll talk about what worked, what didn’t, and what had unexpected benefits for the larger community.
