Studies on factors influencing Software Process Improvement initiatives (SPI) has revealed that in addition to technological factors, human and social factors also interfere in their success. An investigation to understand the influence of leadership initiatives in SPI is important to identify alternatives to SPI programs so they can be managed more effectively. This paper presents a work in progress mapping on leadership, specifically in SPI initiatives. The paper presents the selected publications with emphasis on findings related to leadership initiatives in SPI. With this work, we found that there is still space in the literature for research specifically on the influence of leadership in SPI initiatives, providing an opportunity for contributions that will be explored in this work in progress by the authors.
