Most Agile frameworks inspirated by or the inspiration of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development, are presented by Trainers and Coaches as a risk reduction approach, a very simplistic, inaccurate and old perception about what Risk and Risk Management are. Agile, by embracing change, embraces risk. In Agile risk is not minimized but exploited. This book is an introduction to Risk Management for Agile leaders and teams. It provides a Project Manager’s view on how risk can be used to improve Agility and it is based on practical experience on using Risk Management in projects that are delivered using an Agile approach.
