Speaking In

Re-using existing tools can save time and money, but finding tools to use or adapt can be challenging if you don’t know where to begin.

The Engine Room looked into how organisations are making the most of tool re-use. With open contracting as a use case, they were able to identify several conditions that can significantly improve a re-use project’s chances of success.
