Managerial commitment towards SPI in small and very small enterprises

O'Connor, Rory orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-2446-3224, Basri, Shuib and Coleman, Gerry (2010) Managerial commitment towards SPI in small and very small enterprises. In: 17th European Conference, EuroSPI 2010., 1-3 Sept. 2010, Grenoble, France..

This paper compares and contrasts the results of two similar studies into the software process practices in Irish Small and Very Small Enterprises. The first study contains rich findings in relation to the role and influence of managerial experience and style, with particular respect to the company founder and software development managers in small to medium seized enterprises (SMEs), whilst the second study contains extensive findings in relation to people and management involvement / commitment and SPI goal planning in very small enterprises (VSEs). By combining these results of these two studies of Irish SMEs/VSEs we can develop a rich picture of managerial commitment towards SPI and in particular explore the similarities between Small and Very Small Enterprises.
