Risk Management Resources

Herding Cats

Risk Management is essential for development and production programs. Risk issues that can be identified early in the program, which will potentially impact the program later, termed Known Unknowns and can be alleviated with good risk management.

A Digital Service Canvas for Government and Enterprise

Scrum.org

It’s an agile activity which looks like it ought to be a no-brainer for teams…something they’d want to buy into, and of clear value to all. Everyone else seems to have more important matters to attend to than another piece of agile “fluff”. As far as a Scrum of Scrums goes for example, an appealing value proposition could be the management of immediate pain-points such as dependencies, or the sharing of knowledge which attendees need now. The canvas as an agile artefact.

Microeconomics and Risk Management in Decision Making for Software Development

Herding Cats

If we look at the discipline of software engineering, we see that the microeconomics branch of economics deals more with the types of decisions we need to make as software engineers or managers. By the way, the pure conjecture that agile enables late changing requirements to not have a significant impact on the cost and schedule of the development project is completely lacking any testable evidence outside of personal anecdotes of agile advocates. Now To Risk Management.

Black Swans

Herding Cats

Here's a book review from 2008, about Black Swans and Fooled By Randomness in the context of managing software development in the presence of uncertainty. All is good so far until he mentions these concepts are applicable to the management of projects. What struck me was how disconnected Taleb is from the profession of project management. The critical success factor of managing projects in the presence of uncertainty is to determine which models are useful.

Cone of Uncertainty - Part Cinq

Herding Cats

The Cone is a project management framework describing the uncertainty aspects of estimates (cost and schedule) and other project attributes (cost, schedule, and technical performance parameters). Aleatory and Epistemic uncertainties, which create the risk to the success of the project. Other uncertainties that create risk include: Unrealistic performance expectation with missing Measures of Effectiveness and Measures of Performance. This is the basis of a risk tolerant plan.

The CoU is a build-to paradigm, where measures of the program's performance cumulative to date is used to inform the risk for future performance.

COTS – Commercial off the Shelf Lifecycle Model

Jez Lister

Since then I have implemented numerous COTS Commercial off the Shelf packages in sectors such as central government, local government, law, housing and higher education. In 2008 I started putting together an outline COTS methodology. COTS Governance – I hope by the time the reader gets to this section they will have understood that stakeholder management, setting expectations and allocation of the right people is essential to the success of the project.
