Abstract

Agile or Plan-driven approaches to software process improvement (such as the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) and the ISO/IEC 15504 standard) claim to provide companies with improved processes, higher quality software and faster software development. Assessment is an important component of any software process improvement programme, as in order for an organisation to commence an improvement programme, they must first be aware of the current state of their software development practices. Therefore, in the case of small companies such assessments need also to be cost effective and focused only on the most relevant process areas.
