Microeconomics and Risk Management in Decision Making for Software Development

Herding Cats

Research clearly shows the root causes of most software projects cost and schedule overruns and technical shortfalls comes from poor risk management. Most post-mortems of these software disaster projects have shown that their problems would have been avoided or strongly reduced if there had been an explicit early concern with identifying and resolving their high-risk elements. Now To Risk Management. Risk is the effect of uncertainty of objectives.

Misunderstanding Making Decisions in the Presence of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

The risk is created when we have not accounted for this natural variances in our management plan for the project. Dealing with Aleatory (irreducible) uncertainty and the resulting risk requires we have margin. An aleatory risk is expressed as a relation to a value. Epistemic uncertainty can also occur when there is a subjective evaluation of the system - a risk from a rare event or an event with little or no empirical data. One starting point is the value at risk.

The Agile Fluency model

Henny Portman

The Agile Fluency model, developed by Diana Larsen and James Shore in 2012 and substantially updated in 2018, is a framework to help teams understand their current position and to help them develop an individual road map. The team can release their latest work, at minimal risk and cost, whenever the business desires. Optimizing teams lead their market (innovative business agility, agile’s promise).

2017 Project Management Trends To Watch

Girl's Guide to PM

Our software tools are full of data from the risks we log to the estimates we fail to achieve. Not into what template you need to use or whether it’s a ‘ risk log ’ or a ‘risk register’. How long can we cruise on the coattails of project successes like London 2012? I’ll be watching the Infrastructure Industry Innovation Platform to see what impact that has on project success (lots, I hope).

The percentage of project managers who report to the PMO increased from 42% in 2012 to 52% in 2016. Balance the need for innovation with the need for stability. And as new technology emerges and companies seek more innovation, PMOs must evolve to remain relevant and valuable.
