Abstract

This TSP Symposium 2014 presentation describes how Tecnológico de Monterrey and the Software Engineering Institute began the Team Software Process (TSP) organization evaluation process in 2008 and completed initial pilots of the Process and Capability Evaluation (PACE) in 2013. The effort has been partially funded by the Mexican government not only in order to assure that Mexican companies implement the TSP effectively but also to have national statistics to demonstrate the improving status of Mexican industry. Continuing with the TSP-PACE, we have evaluated more than 10 organizations in Mexico, using a combination of TSP data, project records, and on-site review. We present some results of the evaluations conducted and describe how the evaluations support both organizational performance improvement and national benchmarking. This presentation will discuss different approaches from the companies to meet their goals.
