- In spite of the potential benefits that the correct application of software verification and validation processes, techniques and tools can provide, their institutionalized use in the software industry does not reach the minimum capability levels required to gain these benefits. Moreover, this circumstance is aggravated in the small and medium SIOs because of the lack of available human and economic resources.In this paper, ten of the most important factors that prevent the correct institutionalization of the software verification and validation efficient practices are presented. These factors are obtained from the authors' experience in several software process improvement initiatives in software verification and validation processes.
