Software development process standards for very small companies

O'Connor, Rory orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-9253-0313 (2017) Software development process standards for very small companies. In: Khosrow-Pour, Mehdi, (ed.) Encyclopedia of Information Science and Technology, 4th Edition. IGI Global, Hershey PA, USA, pp. 6927-6938. ISBN 9781522522553

In recent times quality orientated process approaches and standards have matured and gained acceptance in many software development organizations. Standards emphasize communication and shared understanding more than anything. There are many potential benefits of using standards. In particular for small and very small companies, the benefits that certification can provide include: increased competitiveness, greater customer confidence and satisfaction, greater software product quality, increased sponsorship for process improvement, decreased development risk, facilitation of marketing, and higher potential to export. While good internal software management might help meet the first five claims; the last two can only be the benefits of using a widely recognized standard.
