“Common Project Risks and Agile Mitigations, Part 4, Project & Risk Management” from an Old Blog

  • Failure to apply (or understand) essential project management techniques and/or project control systems (e.g., tracking, measurement).
  • Inadequate visibility of progress (not just resources used) generally due to status reporting being misleading (e.g., generally more optimistic than pessimistic) or not having effective means of tracing a software development from requirements to completed code.
  • Not proactively managing risk or basing actions on “catching up” later (e.g., counting on overtime to handle contingencies).
  • Lack of knowledge of the actual probability of success, late failure warning signals, and reduction in resources needed for the project.
