This paper reports a successful experience of the use of strategic planning for selection of Software Process Improvement (SPI) processes. It presents an unexpected benefit from this approach, which was the adoption of SPI processes by a non-software development area of the organisation. Current SPI models either fail to provide guidance on which processes to improve at first, in continuous models, or provide a set of processes that are not guaranteed to be the ones strategic to the organisation, in staged models. Thus, each particular organisation has to create a strategy to make such decision or venture into the risks of using a generic approach that may not be aligned with the organisationâs needs. This article reports a case study based on the experience of a government agency in Brazil.
