11 Agile risk management process overview. Published with kind permission of © Alan Moran 2013. All Rights Reserved The process begins with the definition of project objectives and context and maps these in terms of organisational risk management. This enables the project as a whole to be risk assessed alongside other similar projects in order to determine if its proposed benefits warrant the level of risk. Next, identification of risk drivers and determination of appetite is addressed in the pre-project phase though it may be returned to later if project circumstances alter significantly.

Generally speaking, agile methodologies make the claim that feedback mechanisms reduce (negative) risk by making information available in a timely manner, in order that the project members can advert negative outcomes. For example the formation of small heterogeneous teams, agile modelling and prototyping and the iterative and incremental nature of project work contribute in this fashion. Whilst these are indeed effective measures to reduce uncertainty, increase transparency and improve communication, there is little guidance on how these can be most effectively deployed.

Often this takes place during the post project review phase (though later when we address agile risk management we will propose that this aspect ought to be covered during iteration retrospectives). The Management of Risk framework devotes considerable attention to this topic and covers a range of issues including success factors, management support and commitment, development of awareness and continual improvement (Office of Government Commerce 2007). Similarly ISACA (2009a) dedicates several processes to the theme of risk governance which aims to secure an optimal risk-adjusted return and spans a wide range of strategic and operational activities.
