Software Development Risk Analysis techniques
Once you leave academic "hello world" projects, software development is full of unknowns which result in the high rate of project failure we see too often in industry. Reasons for a project failure will vary based on the stakeholder interviewed. This session will provide a software development risk framework and examples you can apply in your projects to reduce or at least soften the impact of failure.
The Software Development Risk Analysis techniques presentation examines several tools taken from the Six Sigma world to identify and manage risks with the objective to avoid failures or at least soften the impact of failure. Because software development is a team exercise this presentation is targeted towards everyone from Software Development managers to hands on developers. During the presentation we will apply risk management techniques to several sample (and typical) software development project problem areas.
