SEMAT (Software Engineering Method and Theory) and its many supporters agree that software engineering is gravely hampered by immature practices. For this reason, SEMAT supports a process to re-found software engineering based on a solid theory, proven principles and best practices that includes a kernel of widelyagreed elements that is extensible for specific uses and addresses both technology and people issues. SEMAT focuses on changing the way people deal with methods and processes, which in turn, will impact our industry, education, research and developer community. In this paper we provide a snapshot of some of SEMAT's results and report on the experiences gained both within the academia and industry. Copyright 2012 ACM.
