Abstract:

If youve been involved with software and system process improvement for even a short time, youve most likely experienced the challenges associated with applying process methodologies and tools to your real-life projects. For many, the realization that one size does not fit all can lead to frustration about how best to tailor the processes and tools to fit real-life project needs. TSP is one process framework and toolkit helping teams improve software quality and productivity. Thoughtfully marrying TSP application with your unique team, products, and goals can put you on the path to meeting software cost and schedule commitments. In my experience, the most valuable leg up for adopting TSP are TSP coaches, who focus on supporting the team as well as individuals to transition from workshop learning to practical application. They play a huge role in motivating and guiding the team through their TSP journey. Given the coaches first-hand TSP experience--and their in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the toolkit--they lend a supportive hand as the team tailors, monitors, learns, and grows.
