Planning Summary
Getting Started

The goal of getting started is to profile your organization and map out a best course of action. The classifications listed in the left navigation bar represent different levels of process maturity. Select the one that most closely represents your organization and use the improvement planning matrix to determine the best course of action.

Software process improvement (SPI) is best achieved through education, mentoring, and practice. It does not happen because of corporate edicts, bonus targets, and strong-armed tactics. At times it may require a little of each of these methods but if improperly applied the results will be disappointing. SPI is about changing your culture and when properly done the changes will slowly take hold and the culture will shift to a more productive one.
