When the Pressure Is On: A Risk-based Approach to Project Management
Teams everywhere have experienced tight deadlines for software development projects. In such time-constrained situations, how can you systematically determine where to focus the team’s efforts? How do you determine the right level of requirements documentation? How do you decide how much testing will be necessary so that you are not doing too little-or too much? Reán Young shows how a risk-based approach to these and many other issues helps you identify project strategy options and set priorities. Based on a combination of business and technical factors, you’ll learn to evaluate risks in each area of the application, and devise a plan to ensure that the most critical features will be developed, tested, and delivered before the deadline. When the pressure is on, project teams will be equipped to take ownership of the process and have the tools needed to target, prioritize, and focus appropriately on all aspects of the project-requirements, development, test, and release.
