[Abstract]: This paper establishes the importance of competitive performance for software firms and highlights the potential of reusability in increasing competitive performance. The importance of reusability is discussed by examining its effect on three different software process dimensions - flexibility, productivity and predictability. From the literature, a research model is developed and used as the basis of a survey. The survey findings provide support for the relationship between reusability and some of the software process dimensions. The relationship between one of the software process dimensions and market responsiveness, a dimension of competitive performance is also supported.
