Software quality and IS project performance improvements from software development process maturity and IS implementation strategies

Girish H. Subramanian, James J. Jiang, Gary Klein
2007 Journal of Systems and Software  
Our findings are that CMM levels do associate with IS implementation strategies and higher CMM levels relate to higher software quality and project performance.  ...  While certain IS implementation strategies -executive commitment and prototyping -have a significant impact on both software quality and project performance, training had a significant effect only on software  ...  Yang, 2001 also pointed out that the functionality of the software and the appearance of the user interface could affect software quality.  ...
