Managing processes remain a key challenge for most organizations which need to preserve competitiveness. Process assessment frameworks can help by providing instruments guiding process improvement and regulation alignment. Several process assessment frameworks such as TIPA® are based on the ISO Process assessment standard series ISO/IEC 15504, currently revised in the ISO/IEC 330xx family of standards. Following a Design Science Research (DSR) methodology, this paper visits the TIPA Framework… 


Software-Mediated Process Assessment for IT Service Capability Management
This paper proposes the use of the international standard of process assessment ISO/IEC 15504 for a consistent measurement of process capability and demonstrates development of a software tool based on the standard that enables organisations to self-assess their processes efficiently.

How to Design an Innovative Framework for Process Improvement? The TIPA for ITIL Case
The TIPA for ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) case illustrates how this innovative framework for assessing and improving IT service management processes has gone through all over the innovation chain.
SPICE for SPACE trials, risk analysis, and process improvement
A new approach for software process improvement based on a risk analysis of assessment results is presented, set the basis for integrating process-oriented risk analysis into the S4S method, where, along with the process and capability dimensions, risk can be considered as a new third dimension.
