Abstract: It has been of utmost significance for the software industry to find a way for the successful implementation of software process improvement (SPI). It assumes greater importance when we talk about small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Majority of the researchers have explored limited resources in terms of cost, time and expertise for the low adoption rate of software process reengineering (SPR) in Indian SMEs. Last decade evidenced evolvement of software SMEs; and the rate of adoption of SPI initiatives realised some appreciation. In order to explore the reasons attributing towards the success or failure of SPI, researchers need to focus on the underlying multi-dimensional issues. Sufficient literature is available regarding SPI initiatives of triumphant organisations, but not much has been said about Indian SMEs. This paper aims to point out the facilitating factors in SPI that can really boost the quality of software processes to provide a competitive edge to the Indian SMEs.
