Software Engineering Australia and the Software Quality Institute undertook a survey in 1999 to evaluate the level of adoption of best practice by software developers in Queensland. This paper explains how the survey evaluated the software processes in use and then describes a Process Improvement Program undertaken to measure the capability of software developers, based on the Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination (SPICE) standard. The two evaluation methods and their results are then compared and contrasted.
