All software projects have risk. Often the most valuable projects carry the most risk. Other industries also encounter risk and generate value by understanding and managing that risk effectively. Two industries that extensively deal with risk are Investment Banking and Oil Exploration. Todd and a partner that helped developed this presentation, Chris Matts, are seasoned veterans involved in developing software in these industries. Building from outside-in, he looks at the business of software development from an overall risk management perspective and in particular the role of the business analyst in proactively managing risk. Todd introduces a number of theories, tools and practices surrounding risk and risk management. He shares practical experience using these techniques and approaches, explaining what works and what does not based on his experience and that of his colleagues.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding types of risks
  • The role of the Business Analyst in managing risk
  • Practical tools for identifying and managing risk
