Moreover, SPI is able toaddress various organizational problems, but the SPI process is generally quite extensive. Apart from knowing what processes and practices need improvement, it is also essential to know each process’s and practice’s priorities. This research prioritizesCMMI-Dev process areas and practicesto improve project costs on IT projects that use scrum as agile software development.The researcher evaluated each process area’s capability level and collected data using the SCAMPI C questionnaire.
