Abstract
Software development project still of high failure rates. A diversity of risk management approaches are suggested by researchers and followed by organizations in order to minimize the failure rate and ensure project success. However, does risk management do always what it is supposed to do? In this research, we survey field workers and interview project managers, to investigate the influence of risk management on project success in practice, and to explore and reveal situations where risk management could lead to failure. We also try to find if there is a relation between risk management and different software project success criteria, as well as customer satisfaction. We also give some recommendations to help field workers performing a... (More)
