    he rationale which is normally heard to opt for Agile transformation is

    – High predictability of result

    – Higher productivity

    The failure rate of software projects in waterfall was always very high. Industry started moving towards Agile and its variants.

    What does Agile do? It makes team work in model to reduce uncertainty and increase probability of success. The way a team reacts to Risks shows it appetite to respond take failures.

    Now since we all know about agile and its working philosophy, the time is to optimize the key areas to get effective results.

    Effect Risk Management is what I would like to talk. I would like to share a model which we have used in variety of projects over last 5 years and has really helped us.

    Risk Management in Agile and DevOps

    – Continues process.

    – The outcome of all rituals is identification of risks [Daily Stand ups, Planning mts, Retrospectives]

    – How through this tools, we converted Risks into impediments wherever required and helped add certainty to Risk

    – Leadership teams primary role was Impediment removal and Risk identification

    Risk tracking is equally important like User Story tracking and closure. We normally tend to overlook this and add Risk to overall project success.

    I shall share a mindset, how we should always be on look out for Risk and work towards its mitigation.

    “If you don’t invest in Risk Management, then does not matter which business you are doing, it is a risky business”
