"Large software projects will never be without some risk, but if risks can be brought down to acceptable levels, that will be a good beginning" - Capers Jones, 1998 As stated by Capers Jones, Chairman Software Productivity Research Inc. [Jon98], software has been the most troubling technology of the 20th century. Major software projects have the highest probability of being cancelled or delayed of any known business activity. Once deployed, software projects often display excessive error densities and low levels of reliability. In addition, software is achieving a very bad public reputation because of several highly publicized disasters. However, it is not a law of nature that software projects will run late, be cancelled, or be unreliable after deployment. A careful program of risk analysis and abatement can reduce the probability of major software disasters, and also shorten average development cycles at the same time.
