Different Conceptions in Software Project Risk Assessment

Höst, Martin LU and Lindholm, Christin LU (2007) The Software Engineering Track at The 22nd Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) p.1422-1426
Abstract
During software project risk management, a number of decisions are taken based on discussions and subjective opinions about the importance of identified risks. In this paper, different people's opinions about the importance of identified risks are investigated in a controlled experiment through the use of utility functions. Engineering students participated as subjects in the experiment. Differences have been found with respect to the perceived importance, although the experiment could not explain the differences based on undertaken role in a development course.
