Software Process Improvement (SPI) Manifesto with Introduction

Summary: The SPI Manifesto was created at the European Software Process Improvement Conference in September 2009. The manifesto is included here, along with an introduction by two participants in the conference. The purpose of this collaborative work is to provide guidance for the models, standards, methods, and techniques around the world that focus on software process and quality. Each value and consequent principles are clearly stated, and short explanations are given for each value. Relevant examples are also provided. Software practitioners can use the manifesto when planning an SPI project and can apply its principles in their organization’s process improvement initiatives.
