Abstract : The purpose of this report is to communicate status, progress, lessons learned, and next steps for the Mexican Team Software Process (TSP) Initiative, a collaboration between the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (Tee de Monterrey), sponsored by the Mexican Ministry of Economy through Prosoft (the Program for the Software Industry Development). The initiative seeks to improve the standing of the Mexican software industry through the process and performance improvement benefits of the SEI's Team Software Process. We will discuss the results through Phase I and some early results from Phase II; performance results to date are compared to TSP and industry benchmarks.
