Abstract : This handbook provides detailed information about the need for and formation of Software Engineering Process Groups (SEPGs). The resources needed from the organization, including management leadership, training, resource personnel and support, are described. Details of the team meeting are provided, including suggested agendas for the initial meetings. Most importantly, RAC's Continuous Improvement Strategy is discussed; this provides a step-by-step roadmap for the SEPG to follow as it progresses along the improvement process. The focus is not upon the software, its maturity or and its implementation but upon the methodology for people working together to improve it
