Developing a Maturity Matrix for Software Product Management [chapter]

Inge van de Weerd, Willem Bekkers, Sjaak Brinkkemper
2010 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
The quality of processes in Software Product Management (SPM) has a high impact on the success of a software product, as it improves product quality and prevents release delays.  ...  To improve the SPM practice, we propose the maturity matrix for SPM, a focus area oriented maturity model concentrating on the SPM functions Requirements Management, Product Roadmapping, Release Planning  ...  Most existing software process improvement (SPI) models aim at a broad spectrum of SPI and the area of SPM is usually not the main area of attention.  ...
