Abstract: The study involved a survey of Ugandan small and medium enterprises that develop software on critical factors influencing the adoption of software capability maturity model. The research examined the software development environment in these small and medium enterprises and the operational tenets of the software capability maturity modelling in order to establish the critical parameters that should be considered for successful adoption of the software capability maturity model by small and medium software enterprises. Quantitative data was analysed using factor analysis to deduce the critical factors on the variables based on the data collected from the field. Linear regression analysis was also done to determine whether there was a significant relationship between adoption of software capability maturity model and adoption parameters. The key parameters for adoption of the software capability maturity model were identified as management's ability to choose appropriate improvement strategy, organisational culture, managements' commitment, developers' involvement, effective communication, rewards, training and project championship.
