Abstract

This paper discusses reasons why small organizations often do not adopt software process models and metrics that are more prevalent and expected in larger organizations and which models they may adopt or alter in order to obtain manageability that a full-scale software process models and metrics solution offers. It addresses why smaller software organizations may be apprehensive to adopt the models, why many existing models do not work, what models may be applied and how, why they should adopt a model, and ultimately successes found after software process model adoption.
