Start a SPIN

The SEI Can Help You Start, Sustain, or Join a SPIN

You want to be a part of the software and systems process improvement revolution that is getting the attention of government, industry, and academia. You may consider yourself a change agent, and you may want to find other individuals in your region who can combine to form a node on the rapidly growing Software and Systems Process Improvement Network (SPIN). We will help you find others in your region, start a planning committee, and support your development of a charter.

SPIN Artifacts

If you are starting or sustaining a SPIN, the following material can assist in that process. These documents were donated by the following SPINs: Atlanta, Georgia; Boston, Massachusetts; Great Lakes, Michigan; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If you have SPIN-related documents that you would like to share, send them to the SEI SPIN Coordinator. Thank you!
