Software inspection is a rigorous process for validating software work products that's both efficient and cost effective. However, this process presents challenges that might keep software developers from continuing to implement inspections. From our experience, major reasons for this are poor or missing customization of inspections for given context characteristics and insufficient stakeholder involvement. The TAQtIC (Tailoring Approach for Quality-Driven Inspections) inspection approach lets organizations implement inspections in a sustainable way in a given organizational context. Practitioners can use TAQtIC's underlying concepts to customize inspections for their environment. Experiences from projects using this approach demonstrate how organizations can tailor inspections of their software products.
