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 moreproblems occur. Leading software companies use quantitative risk management methods as a more useful approach to achieve success. Written for busy professionals charged with delivering high-quality products on time and within budget, Managing Risk is a comprehensive guide that describes a success formula for managing software risk. The book is divided into five parts that describe a risk management road map designed to take you from crisis to control of your software project. Highlights include:

  • Six disciplines for managing product development.
  • Steps to predictable risk-management process results.
  • How to establish the infrastructure for a risk-aware culture.
  • Methods for the implementation of a risk management plan.
  • Case studies of people in crisisÐand in control. less
