In this paper we describe the appraisal method that was developed by the Centre for Software Process Technologies (CSPT) to assess software processes within small to medium sized organisations that have little or no experience of software process improvement programmes. The method, called Express Process Appraisal (EPA), is a class-C compliant CMMI® [1] method for the assessment of software processes. It has been applied in 6 commercial organisations to date. The experiences of these appraisals are discussed.
