Managing processes remain a key challenge for most organizations which need to preserve competitiveness. Process assessment frameworks can help by providing instruments guiding process improvement and regulation alignment. Several process assessment frameworks such as TIPA® are based on the ISO Process assessment standard series ISO/IEC 15504, currently revised in the ISO/IEC 330xx family of standards. Following a Design Science Research (DSR) methodology, this paper visits the TIPA Framework evolution throughout iterative cycles in terms of design, rigour and relevance. It investigates how original and new artefacts are being developed and improved over the period of ten years, in particular the new strategic move towards the automation of the assessment process. By demonstrating the evolution of the TIPA framework using a DSR perspective, this paper explicates design knowledge regarding the role and value of the framework within the ISO standards community and in practice.
