DescriptionRisk Management is one of the major disciplines of software project management. At the same time this is one of the disciplines least mastered by managers at all levels.
The concept of risk has become a common part of everyday life and is perceived by everybody as something very familiar and clear. As a result – a spontaneous and largely intuitive process of fighting "everyday" risks has been firmly equated with the concept of "risk management” in the minds of many managers.
