Top-down process improvement approaches provide a high-level model of what the process of a software development organization should be. Such models are based on the consensus of a designated working group upon how software should be developed or maintained. They are very useful in the sense that they provide general guidelines on where to start improving, and in which order to people who do not know. However, the majority had only worked in scenarios within large companies. We aim to help small software development organizations adopt an iterative approach by providing a Process Improvement Web-based Tool. This paper presents research into the proposal that a small organization may use this tool to define and implement a set of agile project management practices that can be strengthened using the CMMI-DEV 1.2 model as reference.
