Outlining a Risk-Driven Development Model (RDD)
2009 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
On the surface, agile and risk management process models seem to constitute two contrasting approaches. Risk management follows a heavyweight management approach whereas agile process models advocate a lightweight engineering one. Despite this, a merge between those two is possible. This chapter suggests a Risk-Driven Development model (RDD), a model integrating risk management with agile development process models. It first identifies commonalities in these two process models. It then investigates the state of practice of integrating risk management with software development in 37 software organizations. The results of these two steps provide feedback for outlining the RDD model. The RDD model itself was evaluated by 10 software practitioners.
