Cater-Steel, Aileen and Fitzgerald, Edmond P. (1998) Higher CMM levels attained by QA certified software developers. In: International Software Process Improvement, Research and Education Conference (INSPIRE '98), Sept 1998, London, U.K..
[Abstract]: This paper addresses the question: is higher capability maturity associated with adoption of Quality Assurance (QA) certification? To assess the extent of adoption of third-party QA certification by Australian software developers, a survey of 1,000 software developers was recently conducted. The questionnaire also included an assessment of their capability maturity based on the capability maturity model (CMM). Cynics who criticise the value of QA certification may be surprised by the strong association found between adoption of QA certification and capability maturity.
