This presentation will describe to conference attendees the evolution and current status of the
TSP Evaluation Framework (TSP-EF),
an empirical approach being developed to measure how closely a
Team Software ProcessSM
project team is following all of the TSPSM and PSPSM principles and practices.
First publicly proposed at the
2004 TUG Conference,
the TSP-EF supplements (does not replace) existing TSP coaching tools such as the Checkpoint script.
It parallels, and builds upon, the three-part
Extreme Programming Evaluation Framework
et al. in the agile world for measuring XP practices and results in industrial projects.
In the short term, the TSP-EF can provide a quantitative, consistent method for
TSP coaches to measure which practices and principles of the TSP and PSP
are actually being applied on their real-world projects, and to what extent.
For the long term, it will establish a basis for future statistical analysis
of which specific context and adherence factors are most influential in achieving
the high quality and improved predictability which TSP and PSP (properly used) can deliver.
The purpose of this session is to describe updates to the framework
based upon feedback from the
TSP-EF proposal session at TUG 2004,
lessons learned from initial industrial trials of TSP-EF,
and the resulting changes made to the framework.
Feedback from TUG attendees will be solicited on:
- which context, adherence, and results factors should be included, or excluded, in the framework,
based on their experiences;
- what specific measures should be used for various elements of the framework;
- how to make it easy for TSP coaches and team leaders to effectively apply the framework
to guide continuous process improvement on their projects.
