Many teams and organizations wonder whether they need to do Risk Management for agile projects, and how. The misconception that an agile project does not require planning, leads naturally to the conclusion that an agile project does not require risk management. The fact is that every project needs some planning and has risks. That includes agile projects. In this presentation, we will review some guidelines and techniques for managing risk in Scrum projects. We will see how the Scrum framework is designed with risk “built-in”. We will also cover some techniques that help the team to proactively manage risk.



Participants will:

  • Understand the importance of Risk Management in any project.
  • Understand traditional Risk Management principles.
  • Recognize how Scrum it optimized for Risk Management.
  • Learn basic techniques for managing risk in Scrum.
