Perks of Being the Killjoy – Risk Management, the Agile Way

Katarzyna Łukasiewicz


Strefa PMI nr 37, Czerwiec 2022

With agile being now the most popular approach to IT project management, the variety of projects it’s being used for is extensive. Agile is no longer reserved for small, dynamic products. It has turned out that more complex, potentially critical projects can also benefit from agile practices. Nevertheless, some adjustments had to be made – such as managing risks. Risk management is a no brainer in systems where human lives are at stake. However, I would like to address another type of projects, the ones that most of us are probably involved in – products that in case of malfunction will not cost lives, but might have some serious (usually financial) repercussions. Even though “risk” is not the most attractive of terms, it’s worth bringing it up during your agile meetings. And who knows, maybe being the killjoy at the planning phase will allow your team to actually achieve more joy by the end of the project?
