Success Factors Leading to the Sustainability of Software Process Improvement Efforts
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Despite the fact that many software organizationsput a lot of effort into software process improvement, theystill do not always succeed in sustaining the improvementresults. We believe that this is due to the fact that currentsoftware process improvement frameworks and/or modelsdo not provide any aid in form of a list of success factors thatprimarily contribute to the sustainability of SPI efforts. Inthis paper, we compile thirty two SPI success factors aselicited in theoretical and empirical studies. Our primarygoal is to aid software companies in defining, planning,monitoring and improving their SPI efforts. Our secondarygoal is to create a basis for identifying SPI health attributeswhich, in turn, would allow software companies to determinethe health of their SPI projects.
