Abstract
It is well known that software product quality is largely dependent on the process that is used to create it. However, even when many organizations are motivated to implement software process initiatives (SPI), not all know how best to do, especially in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) where due to its especial features, they have to be carefully in how to manage its resources to assure their market survival. As a result, implementing SPI initiatives in SMEs has become a great challenge, mainly because SMEs? work culture is immersed in a chaotic and changing environment. This paper presents a method for understanding the environment of SMEs in order to identify findings that allow to address a successful software process improvement in SMEs. Besides, an experience of applying the proposed method in 4 SMEs is presented.
