Aspects you should consider in your action plan when implementing an improvement strategy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Both ISO/IEC 15504 (SPICE) and ISO/IEC 33014 include a step in their improvement process called: Develop action plan. But which actions should you include, and are you sure that these actions cover all aspects? We have performed a thorough study of the change strategy literature that is the foundation for the ten overall change strategies defined in ISO/IEC 33014. We have extracted statements from this material that represent generic actions recommended by the authors for each strategy. Through analytic induction we have then identified and validated eight aspects that you should consider when choosing your concrete actions for executing the strategy.
