Abstract [en]

Some software organizations still practice ad hoc development, evolution and maintenance of their systems. Many of them are typical start-up companies. They wish to become immediately profitable without paying heed to rudimentary success factors such as for instance software processes. As a result, they have little insight into and control over their activities. This paper reports on our experiences gained from our process improvement effort at Mobile Navigation, a Swedish start-up company. This effort has aided Mobile Navigation to progress from the stage of knowing almost nothing to knowing at least a little about their processes.
