Pereira, Javier, Cerpa, Narciso, Verner, June, Rivas, Mario and Procaccino, Drew (2008): What Do Software Practitioners Really Think About Project Success: A Cross-Cultural Comparison. In Journal of Systems and Software, 81 (6) pp. 897-907.

Due to the increasing globalization of software development we are interested to discover if there exist significant cultural differences in practitioners' definition of a successful software project. This study presents the results of a survey in which Chilean software practitioners' perceptions of project success are compared with previous research with US practitioners. Responses from both groups of practitioners indicate that there is a relationship between team-work and success; our results also indicate that there are similar perceptions related to the importance of job satisfaction and project success. However, Chilean responses suggest that if a practitioner is allowed too much freedom within the work environment, job stress results; this in turn is reflected in increasing demands for both job satisfaction and good environmental conditions. This may indicate the potential for the attribution of failure to conditions outside the team, thus preventing a search for problematic team issues and technical problems. In contrast, the data suggests peer control inside the US teams indicating a less stressful environment.

Cerpa, Narciso, Pereira, Javier and Verner, June (2007): A Practitioner Experiment in Understanding Software Process Improvement Using Systems Modular Analysis. In Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 4764 pp. 82-93.

Software process improvement (SPI) models can be difficult to understand, principally because they lack visual representations relating concepts to text. Some models do not provide guidelines to help us understand their properties: i.e., their modular structure, the control-regulation configuration of common features in a key process area, and the arrangement of key process areas at each level. We propose Systems Modular Analysis (SMA) as a graphical modelling approach to facilitate understanding of SPI models. Using SMA, we reveal the internal structure of a key process area (KPA) in CMMSW as a non-redundant configuration of common features. When the Level 2 KPAs of CMM-SW are modelled using SMA, a normative structure which shows a modular and recursive arrangement of process areas is obtained. We conduct an experiment to show how SMA helps in understanding CMM-SW. We conclude that SMA significantly improves understanding of the properties and structure of CMM-SW Level 2.
