ABSTRACT
The software development global market is opening its doors to more countries, giving small organizations an opportunity to benefit from more competitive conditions. A requisite for being competitive is to adopt internationally accepted software process practices. Small organizations trying to start their own effort must carefully identify how their environment affects an improvement initiative.<p>The authors report on the adoption of SW-CMM Level 2 in Link, a Chilean organization. This was a software process improvement initiative led by one of the authors. They explain Link's organizational environment, the initiative performed, and the factors that affected the initiative. They found a strong relationship between organizational environment and the initiative's success factors; specifically, that Link's small size helped the SW-CMM's adoption.</p>
