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.

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.
