Perhaps “executive summary” is a good alternative?

Maybe just "OpenChain Conformance” left as a term in English, or not-so-good translation is fine. 一致性 is the machine translation of conformance but… I have no idea.

I think it is better to stay “organizations” because we want all companies, not only open source, to consider using this.

I will try to rephrase.

The goal is for organizations to meet the requirements of the OpenChain Specification. Different versions of the OpenChain Specification may have different requirements. Organizations try to meet the requirements of their selected version.
