Projects can fail not only from issues that present themselves as patterns but also from project risks.

This Course focuses on Risks Management and Risk Planning. Risks can make even a well-planned Agile and Scrum project go off track, so it is important to plan for and mitigate risks as much as possible. Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Define the term risk.
  • Define the terms impact, likelihood, and value.
  • Know how to create and use an impact vs. likelihood matrix and
  • Know how you can use a risk-value matrix to prioritize risks and features.
  • Know how to address different rankings of problems along with the impact vs. likelihood matrix and risk-value matrix.
  • Define the terms risk management plan, indicator, action.
  • Understand the difference between group anti-patterns and individual anti-patterns.
  • Identify, describe, and suggest means of addressing common management anti-patterns, including analysis paralysis, cart before the horse, Groupthink, silos, vendor lock-in, overengineering, gold-plating, viewgraph engineering, fire drill and heroics, death march, micromanagement, seagull management, email as the primary means of communication, loose cannon, and intellectual violence.
  • Identify and define types of risks including scope risk, technology risk, customer and stakeholder risks, and personnel risks.
  • Create a risk management plan.
  • And important factors related to risk monitoring…

Even though using Agile methodology reduces risk in the early phases of software development, we should also consider the idea that there is a demand to start thinking about making more room to risk management in a more formalized way.
