MANAGEMENT OF RISK IN ENVIRONMENT OF DISTRIBUTED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT - Results of the Evaluation of a Model for Management of Risk in Distributed Software Projects

Cirano Soares de Campos, Jorge Luis Nicolas Audy

Abstract

The objective of this article is to present the results of the evaluation of a model of management of risk for organizations that work with distributed software development – GeRDDoS. The model proposes the administration of risks properly aligned among the global unit (head office) and the distributed unit (branch) executor of the project, emphasizing that the success of the project depends on the success of the actions executed in both units. The model is an extension of the proposal of management of risks of the Software Engineering Institute – SEI, which shows a continuous and interactive process for the administration of risks, supported by coordination and communication process during the whole life cycle of the project. In that article the results of the application of the proposed model are presented, through the analysis of the results of a case study on the application of the model in a company for distributed software development located in Brazil.
