Configuration Management as the Key to Success in Software Process Improvement Efforts
Thomas Green
Grad Student, Department of Computer Science

Software process improvement efforts are difficult to implement and often fail to produce positive change in an organization. The challenges faced by these organizations include costly assessments, long and/or expensive efforts, processes that remain static (gather dust), difficulty applying improvement models to smaller organizations, and organizational culture resistance. This dissertation proposes investigating the use of proven configuration management techniques as applied to software and adapting them to apply to software development processes. In using configuration management it is expected that process improvement efforts will come under better organizational control, processes will improve faster, and organizational knowledge will be retained.

This is a practice proposal talk.
