Establishing Multi-model Environments to Improve Organizational Software Processes

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 206)

Abstract

Organizations worldwide are adopting several international standards and models, in an effort to improve the software processes, however, the difficulty by using multi-model improvement environments in the implementation of successful process improvements is well known. This paper shows the steps in order to establish a multi-model Environment based on the organization’s business goals. It includes the results of a case study on project management process improvement in an organization.

Keywords
