Organizational, political, and configuration mistakes in the deployment of a static source code analysis tool within a software development organization can result in most of the value of the tool being lost, even while apparently meeting management goals. A list of pitfalls encountered as a static analysis consultant is presented, with discussion of techniques for avoiding or mitigating them. This is part of a work in progress, tentatively entitled "Handbook of Static Analysis Deployment."
