PRISMA: Product Risk Assessments for Agile projects
Erik van Veenendaal, December 2012
Risk assessment and management is the backbone of sequential development models but how does it fit in agile
How can we be sure to identify new risks when they emerge and to ensure our understanding of all risks remains accurate? In agile much emphasis is on communication. Perfect for development issues where mistakes can be discussed and fixed. But product risk are not by nature iterative: they is absolute and exists all the
time and making mistakes in dealing with them may not acceptable. Hence the discussion and consensus approach needs to be slightly formalized by the use of a systematic method and process. That’s where PRISMA comes in.
