Handbook of Applied Software Risk Management
Few software projects are completed on time, on budget, and to their original specification. Research supports that projects usually fail due to management, rather than technical, mistakes. Focusing on what practitioners need to know about risk in the pursuit of delivering software projects, Applied Software Risk Management: A Guide for Software Project Managers covers key components of the risk management process, current processes, and best practices for software risk identification, risk planning, and techniques of risk analysis. This book brings together concepts across software engineering with a project management perspective, presenting examples of the scientific method in risk perception, analysis, and resolution.
