Example text

Many project managers avoid exposing the extended project team to the risk list or are in denial about the existence of the risk. They are afraid that revealing it will look bad to stakeholders and team members and will indicate that they are managing the project poorly. And unfortunately, many company executives do more readily criticize than praise project managers who are open about risks. [5] It should be each team member's responsibility to be both brave enough to speak up and responsible enough not to criticize others who do so, even though the risk may point to a flaw in their area of responsibility.

In the end you might need to scrap half of the manuscript or more and do it all over again. This sounds like a crazy approach, right? But many teams develop software this way. Let's look at an alternative approach to writing a bookthe one we used when writing this one. The main idea was to get rapid feedback on key elements of the book so that we could rethink and improve it. We wanted to get this feedback before we invested the time required to write the complete text. We therefore divided the writing into a number of succinct iterations, each of which resulted in a well-defined deliverable that could readily be assessed, to ensure that we all understood the status of our book project and to get meaningful feedback on how to improve the book.

XP provides limited guidance on the topic of managing risk, but several practices are designed to drive down risk: • Make risks widely visible to the team, for example by dedicating whiteboard space for a risk list. • Use short one- to two-week iterations with continuous integration and testing to provide quick feedback loops. • Make customers a part of the project team to ensure that both business and technical people evolve and validate the application together. One difference between the Unified Process and XP is that the Unified Process lifecycle puts greater emphasis on prioritization based on risk, especially technical risk, whereas XP emphasizes less early investment in mitigating technical risk in favor of customer prioritization of what problems to address.
