Building and maintaining software is a risky Business. Since software permeates and controls so much of the present-day Enterprise (and its products), lateness, cost excess and failure to perform can have far-reaching consequences. A common response to such risk is to ignore it entirely. We justify this as "positive attitude," the heart and soul of a Can-Do management philosophy. But when real risks turn into real problems and send our projects down in flames, we can see that our past "positive attitude" was little more than Denial. There must be a better way.

The purpose of this seminar is to prepare participants to apply the budding discipline of Risk Management to software efforts. They will learn to identify and quantify the specific uncertainties that threaten success. For each uncertainty so identified, participants will learn to contain, mitigate or eliminate its impact.
