F11-403: Managing Risk for Software Products

Track: Test Strategy and Design

Most organizations that develop software as a product, a component of a product, or as a way to reduce internal business expenses manage risk at business, product, and project layers independently, and frequently with separate risk management methodologies. This situation leads to disconnects over what risks can best be managed at which layer, what risks are more or less critical than others, and which critical risks are becoming “lost in the cracks”.

During this session, a consolidated model will be presented with specifics to implementation for managing risk for software products and ensuring business alignment between what is requested and what is delivered.
