Disciplined Agile Risk Management: Address Risk, Don’t Just Manage It

Jun 15, 2021 3:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

The Disciplined Agile (DA) tool kit has management and governance strategies explicitly built into it. DA does this at the team level with the Address Risk process goal and at the enterprise level with the Governance process blade. But wait a minute – Address Risk, not Manage Risk? The difference is a subtle but important nuance. There are many issues for teams to consider, and options to choose from, when they identify how they may best address the risk that they face. But addressing risk at the team level is only a good start, we must also address enterprise risk as well. What appears to be small, acceptable risks at the team level soon add up to unacceptable risks at the organizational level that must be addressed appropriately.

by Angel Hernandez
December 14, 2020 | 59:46 | Views: 16,055 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.57 / 5

Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices
