Towards a Model for Managing Success Factors in Software Process Improvement

Joseph Trienekens

Abstract

Existing software engineering and management literature argue for many different ways of looking at success factors that influence Software Process Improvement (SPI). This study investigates success factors identified in a number of research projects and proposes a model for managing these factors in a structured way during different phases of an SPI program. It also aspires to describe a model that reflects the cyclical influences of factors in a continuously progressing SPI program.
