Summary: "Since it is more than just common sense, the newcomer to risk management needs an intelligent guide. It is in this role that Elaine Hall's book excels. This book provides a set of practical and well-delineated processes for implementation of the discipline." --Tom DeMarco, from the Foreword
Risk is inherent in the development of any large software system. A common approach to risk in software development is to ignore it and hope that no serious
problems occur. Leading software companies use quantitative risk management methods as a more useful approach to achieve success.
