Technological small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that are involved in developing software often lack maturity in the development process. This can result in an increased risk of software quality issues and technological debt. Recently, standards have started to address the need for lightweight process improvements through the development of the ISO 29110 series. In this article, we look at how this series can successfully be applied in the areas of (self)-assessment, diagnosis and specific tooling support.
