Abstract

Most software organizations are facing critical business needs for better cost and schedule management, effective quality management, and cycle-time reduction. The Team Software Process addresses these critical business needs. This report provides results and implementation data from projects and individuals that have adopted the TSP. The results show that TSP teams are delivering essentially defect-free software on schedule, while improving productivity. These data can be used for benchmarking and planning, motivation, lessons learned, and other guidance to those currently using the TSP or considering its use. The report also illustrates adoption experiences of practitioners in the field, including TSP team members, their managers, and their coaches and instructors.
