Abstract

In order to define a modern approach for Software Process Improvement (SPI), the SPI Manifesto was developed, discussed, and finalized at the 16th EuroSPI Conference in 2009 in Alcala, Spain. The common understanding gained during the discussion and usage of the manifesto formed a nucleus from which the new ISO/IEC 33014[ISO01] was derived. In parallel to the development of the SPI Manifesto, the SPI manager Training was developed by the European Certification
and Quality Association (ECQA) under Sponsorship of the European Commission. The goal of the training was to address all topics mentioned in the SPI manifesto and also include additional topics seen as useful for mangers dealing with SPI.
